PARTY LIKE IT'S 1985, PART II
I was wearing this at the beginning of class today.
But it seemed wrong to wear it while leading the chants and teaching class.
So I took it off (yes, I was wearing something underneath!).
Current Bears coach Lovey Smith is no Ditka, that's for sure.
He seems, well, evolved.
As does Colts' coach Tony Dungy.
May the best man win....
And here are a few pieces of '85 debris -- some of which were used at last night's Performance.
Yes, that is John Madden's signature on my football. And it was used in my piece:
Not long after the Superbowl, Jackie and I were watching the All Madden Picks on TV. John Madden and co-host Pat Summerall stood in front of a background that seemed remarkably familiar – and then we realized it was Halas Hall. We grabbed our cameras and footballs, threw on our jackets, and raced to South Campus.
When the segment was over, Jackie and I pushed in front of the fratboys and got our pictures taken with the pair. We told them we wanted to be broadcasters, too. And then we got them to sign my football.

The piece seemed to go over well.
But when I looked up (which was often), I noticed that a couple of people had that look on their face that said, "We're here to hear Art. What the hell is this?!"
But they sat through it anyway.
Wonder what they're doing during the game tonight....
