Mike Ditka, Mike Ditka, Where Art Thou, Mike Ditka?

OK, so Shakepeare couldn’t have written a better vignette than Da Coach did this morning on Mike North’s radio show on WSCR 670 Chicago. Mike Ditka can’t pick between the Chicago Bears and New Orleans Saints? C’mon, I don’t buy it. Da Coach loves Chicago, he lives in Chicago, called Chicago the best city in the world, but yet he can’t pick between the Bears and Saints? The guy bleeds orange and blue. He wants to say the Bears, he needs to say the Bears, but he held back, used the guise of being a member of the national media now and stressed impartiality. Have you heard even ONE national sports media figure fail to give his or her opinion on who will win this game?
The Coach dislikes Mike McCaskey with a passion and is still miffed at how his firing as Bears coach was handled and that’s why he can’t pick the Bears. Unfortunately, McCaskey somehow worked his way back into the Bears hierarchy, although smartly staying out of the limelight and the day to day operation of the Chicago Bears. Coach — you are the Chicago Bears, as much as Babe Ruth was the New York Yankees. Coach, who are you rooting for? Cut the man open, he’s bleeding orange and blue.
