Meeting Sweetness was great. He was TRUE.
Why I am a fan:
Lived in Highland Park in '85 & loved the hype and history of the Bears & Packers as a whole. Still to this day. There is just something about going to Soldier & Lambeau fields it gets into your blood and becomes a part of you.
Favorite Moments:
I lived in Highland Park in '85 and the BEARS just got you hooked and that Super Bowl Shuffle was addicting. On a more personal note, after meeting with Walter Payton, I watched him get in his Lambo and drive away & I got a glimpse of his plate, it was, IOU ZIP. I thought that was ironic and for the longest time I had IOU ZIP & IOU ZIP2 on my cars, however, the price tags just weren't the same, LOL, not to mention getting me into a Lambo, not happenin. ROFL.... I've been a fan of the BEARS ever since.

Bulls I like: # 1 by far is Bodacious, Little Yellow Jacket, then Code Blue, Voodoo Child, Bones, Chicken on a Chain, Major Payne and Pinball Wizard. Riders I like: Lane Frost, Tuff Hedeman, J. B. Mauney, Mike Lee, Chris Shivers, and Mike White...
Why I am a fan:
I loved and still love the history of Bodacious, one of the rankest bulls to ever appear on the Professional Bull Riders,(PBR)... Owner Sammy Andrews has commissioned designer Jeffrey Scott to take on the legendary bull as the latest project for the Official Buckle of the PBR. Bodacious is not only a fan favorite, but also recognized as one the toughest bulls to ever buck on dirt. Bodacious was the PBR Bull of the Year in 1995. “Recognized as, ‘The Baddest of the Bad,’ this is an incredible honor... “Bodacious had an amazing career...” Bodacious, one of the greatest bucking bulls of all time, was inducted in the ProRodeo Hall Of Fame in Colorado Springs, Colorado, on August 14, 1999. Bodacious was the PRCA Bucking Bull of the year in 1994 and 1995; in addition to being named The Bucking Bull at the National Finals Rodeo in 1992, 1994 and 1995. The 1,900-pound Charbray bull injured some of the most talented championship bull riders in the history of the sport. Tuff Hedemen,1995 PBR World Champion, was matched with Bodacious in the final round of the 1995 Professional Bull Riders world championships. Hedemen's face collided with the back of Bodacious' head, several jumps into the ride. The impact broke every bone in the cowboy's face between his upper lip and his eyebrows. Rebuilding his face took surgeons more than six hours and six titanium plates. The damage and swelling made him almost unrecognizable. At the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) later that year, Hedeman ended up drawing Bodacious again, this time in round 7 of the NFR. Hedeman decided to turn out the bull - getting off the bull when he left the chute. He then tipped his hat to the bull, and he received a standing ovation for his decision. Men boarded Bodacious 135 times during the four years he competed, and fewer than 10 riders managed to hang on for the entire eight seconds necessary to enter the books as an official ride. Two of them, Clint Branger and Bubba Dunn, did it twice. World champions Hedeman and Terry Don West rode him twice. Bodacious was owned by stock contractor, Sammy Andrews of Texas. Andrews retired Bodacious from competition in 1995; and Bodacious died in 2000 of natural causes at the age of 12. His semen was stored and 120 cows have produced offspring from the legendary bull. Time will tell if any of his progeny will match his rankness in the arena. It is also common knowledge that Bodacious was a Charbray—the result of a Charlois and Brahman cross. The Charlois, a large, French breed known for fast growth and heavy muscling, is on the Bos taurus side of the bovine chain. The Brahman, developed from imported cattle from India and Brazil, is a hardy, survival oriented breed on the Bos indicus side of the bovine chain. So, let’s see. There’s big, strong, and muscular crowned with a strong survival instinct. Yeah, that pretty much describes Bo all right—One large and in charge, brazen-bucker. Bodacious died on May 16, 2000 in his retirement holding pen at the Andrew’s Rodeo Company Ranch and was buried nearby. Owners Sammy and Carolyn Andrews said the cause of death was heart failure. The band Primus devoted a song to the late bull entitled “Ballad of Bodacious.” An alcoholic drink called "Bodacious" (in honor of the great Bull) has been created by a mastermind. It is quite simple (Red Bull and Whiskey served on the rocks). This is an extremely popular drink in the Chicago area. The drink goes down as gentle as taking a bull's horn in the side.

Greatest Moment in Sports:The 1980 Miracle on Ice--Another hockey moment, and one that defined a decade of American sports optimism. Al Michael's famous call of "Do you believe in miracles---YEEEESSSS!!!!" will long be remembered as the finishing touch on one of the greatest upsets in any sports history. Cal Ripken, Jr. victory lap--Seeing anyone else in #8 in Camden yards would be unthinkable. Since 1983, Cal Ripken, Jr. has played in EVERY game, and over 95% of the innings. Secretariat's win in the 1973 Belmont Stakes to win the Triple Crown. Nolan Ryan throws 7th no-hitter. Nadia's perfect 10 in Gymnastics competition--In 1976.
