Ex-Bear finally shuffles to White House
Finally, after more than 25 years, the Chicago Bears are getting their White House visit. The team, which shuffled its way through the 1985 season and then vanquished the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XX on Jan. 26, 1986, will be honored by President Obama today. The Bears were supposed to meet with President Ronald Reagan after the big win more than a quarter-century ago, but the space shuttle Challenger blew up two days after the Super Bowl. The visit was canceled as the nation mourned, and it never was rescheduled.
