NFL & Music – Chicago Bears – 1986 World Champion Bears Performing “The Super Bowl Shuffle” – With ESPN Bob Ley + Brian Gumble

When this video rolled up to be posted here at ImaSportsphile….I just had to watch it more than a couple of times…..cuz it really gives me a “good ole belly laugh”….while putting a smile all across my face….for just getting to see one of my all time favorite NFL teams doing something “goofy and off the wall” like The Super Bowl Shuffle is simply fitting of the character of Da Bears in 1985….and for all the “zanyiness” that this team had with their “a bit tiched” QB Jim McMahon and their touchdown scoring Refrigerator….this was an exceptionally good football team….I mean, with the likes of Keith Van Horne, Jay Hilgenberg and Jimbo Covert anchoring the O-line…..with Walter “Sweetness” Payton and Matt Suey in the backfield behind QB Jim McMahon….with the speed of Willie Gault to stretch the field and sure handed Dennis McKinnon at wideout….and the Bears offense was impressive…..but the defense was even better….with the front four of Richard Dent, Steve McMichael, William “Refrigerator” Perry and Dan Hampton that was 2nd to none….and a linebacker corp to die for with Otis Wilson, Mike Singletary and Wilbur Marshall….as if that wasn’t enough….when you add safeties Dave Duerson and Gary Fencik to the defensive mix….that is why it was one of the best defenses ever…..who held their opponents to 10 points or less 11 times in their 16 games that they played to win Super Bowl XX.   

As seen in this video herewith….the entire team of the 1986 Super Bowl XX winning Chicago Bears perform for your viewing please….The Super Bowl Shuffle…..which like the song “Wild Thing” by The Trogs….is the ONLY song that these Bears ever performed….and it is a rare “nugget of gold” in our treasure chest of vintage memories here at ImaSportsphile.
