Da Century Shirt
It all began when the head of a food starch company in Decatur, IL, hired a 25 year old ex-Yankee from Chicago to run his amateur football club. The man was George “Papa Bear” Halas and the club would turn into a little thing call the National Football League.
After acquiring the Decatur Staleys for $100 (now worth an estimated $2.5 billion), Halas would soon move the team to Wrigley Field, adopt the colors of his alma mater (U of I) and change the team’s name to the Bears (derived from the baseball team they shared a stadium with). The team would go on to win 10 championships and hold the record for the most HOFers (32). More importantly, they brought an entire city together under a love of Polish sausage and a hatred of cheese.
