The Bears Have A Real Football Guy In Charge: Team Forced To Cancel OTA Practice Today After Violating NFL's Non-Contact Rule

Oh FUCK yes. I don't care if this makes me a big fat Chicago meatball, but I saw that the Bears were hitting so much in June that the League had to step in and cancel a practice. If that is wrong I don't want to be right. No more Be-Yous. No more kumbaya bullshit.

We are off to a good start even though the football on the field will undoubtedly be ugly this year.
