’85 Bears To Finally Get Their White House Party

CHICAGO (CBS) — More than 25 years later, the 1985 Super Bowl champion Chicago Bears are headed to the White House.

President Obama will host the Bears at a celebration on Oct. 7, a White House official confirmed.

The Bears missed the traditional celebration because their 46-10 victory over New England came two days before the Space Challenger exploded, killing the entire crew.

A majority of players, and some members of the coaching staff, are expected to attend.

    Will Coach Ditt be with them? Or will he decline and hold his breath until he turns…what color is THAT?

    It’s ashame that one of the greatest professional sports player, a great man, greatest NFL players, greatest Chicago Bear and greatest running backs and one of the most important player of the 85 Bears ever will not be able to attend this. Some of the new players and people in general should learn from his work ethic, his humility on and off the field and his respect towards everyone.
