SPORT, local angle on Bears franchise [MP]

Tom McNamee (Sun-Times) wrote a column about a letter from George Halas to Guy Giordano of Melrose Park in 1982.

Giordano was skipping school. His mother sent him to a counselor. Giordano told the counselor he did care much about school. His aspiration was to go to Notre Dame and play football for the Chicago Bears. The counselor contacted Halas. Halas wrote Giordano a letter extolling the virtues of an education. Did you know Halas had an engineering degree from the University of Illinois?

Giordano didn't graduate, but his life turned out OK.

Congratulations to the Bears for beating the New Orleans Saints and winning the George Halas Trophy.
