  • Began using Old Spice Swagger in the 80s, which was apparently a renaissance period in Urlacher's suburban neighborhood.
 
  • Attended to the University of Mexico and played for Los Lobos, meaning the Wolves, which required a concession from his parents who were both actual Kodiak grizzly bears.
  • Beyond leading the nation in tackles his Junior year, the All-American also caught 6 TD passes and returned 2 kicks for TDs, all while still having a small resemblance of hair on his head.
  • After a tough rookie season with the Chicago Bears, restored his confidence by dominating a middle school weightlifting competition, apparently:

You're the man, Urlacher! May you and your expressionless stone-face settle into retirement like a boulder into a rock formation.

As relieved as I am that the Lions will never have to go up against the great Urlacher anymore, it's sad to see the NFL lose one of its top players from the past decade and a half.....happy retirement #54
