Hello from Scotland.

I've been following the Bears properly since the 1987 strike season, although I've got memories of watching the previous few Super Bowls, including XX.

European fans in that era were limited to US Armed Forces radio for live games. A lot different now, and I finally made my first trip to Soldier Field for a Thursday night game v the Giants during the Trestman years.

Bears related claim to fame No.1: I once had conversation with Caleb Hanie.
Bears related claim to fame No.2: I once used the restrooms at the Park Grill alongside Carmen DeFalco (restroom etiquette prevented a conversation, of course :o ).

Hello from Cheshire, England... Although originally a Jock from Scotland.
DaBears were the first team I took an interest in when Channel 4 started showing the games back in the 80's.

Glad that we've something to shout about again after years in the wilderness.

Hi all. My name's Matt, I'm in my 20s, and I'm a lifelong NC resident. I've been a Bears fan only a short time, but I also recently became a Bulls and Blackhawks fan too, so there's good and bad there. I've adopted Chicago's teams because I plan to move to the city in the next few years.

Hi, I'm RING4CHI. Along with long walks on the beach, I also enjoy going AWOL for long periods of time.

Long story short, life has taken quite a few turns the last 18 months or so. Most of the turns were good turns, some quite good turns. But the things that have happened my wife and I could've never imagined happening when they did, so our time just got preoccupied.

Life is good, and hopefully I can be back around these parts more often.
