NFL – Chicago Bears – LB Dick Butkus – The Monster of the Midway

DOG COMMENTARY:

Writing about Da Bears is an easy thing for me to do….not just because I have a great deal of Bears content on my webpage….with so much more to come….but more so because the Bears have always had what I call “characters”….I mean in no particular order…..The Fridge….Sweetness….Papa Bear….The Comet….Iron Mike….Bronko….Red….Bulldog….and so many more….cuz Da Bears have more members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame than any other NFL franchise….but there was absolutely NO CHARACTER like Dick Butkus….for even to Da Bears and their faithful…..there was no character on quite like Dick Butkus…..for he was the gold standard for what is affectionately known as “The Monsters of the Midway”

This video is one of my favorites….as it features a true hero of mine…..Steve Sabol….for Steve and his dad, Ed, were the founders of NFL Films….for these two men were the visionaries of filmed and video sports….which has grown exponentially since they were filming NFL.  I love these guys, cuz they are the best of the best….and I cherish the hours of their video that I have to share with NFL fans and Sportsphiles everywhere.  

This video features some really nice introduction touches to The Monster of the Midway…..as two simply great NFL commentators set-up this awesome video with their own spooky Halloween special affects….something that these guys really didn’t need….Harry Kalas and Steve Sabol were simply that good….for you could tell that these guys just loved what they were doing…..and they had fun doing it around the subject athlete known as Dick Butkus….tor to my humble Sportsphile opinion…..Butkus was the most feared linebacker of all time…..which is saying a mouthful…..and if you don’t believe me….just watch this video and the comment back to me if you do or don’t agree with me.
