The Honey Bears and
Rarely does one meet a Chicago Bears fan that doesn't lament the
loss of the Honey Bears, the teams' cheerleaders that entertained fans at games
from 1977 through 1985. I was fortunate to have interviewed the group's
founder, Cathy Core, in 2004 for my book. There is a fair amount of information
on the Honey Bears in the book, as I feel too little has been written on them
to this point. Also contained on this page is a photo and a little information
on "Rocky", an unofficial Bear mascot that strolled the sidelines and the
stands, entertaining fans in the 1970's and 1980's.
Information on hall of famers, championships, and the
gameday experience at Soldier Field.

I began taping every Bears game in 1999, and at the
same time trading other video collectors to build my collection. When this
website redesign is complete I'll be converting everything to DVD. People may
think I'm crazy for keeping this collection and taping every game, but the way
I see it is the only way I can see a historical game is by recording it. There
is no place else to get this until the NFL decides to provide every game in
history available on demand. That's doubtful. If you have something unique to
trade I would entertain your offer, however I do not sell these videos and
unfortunately I can't make copies for everyone that asks. If you have any
interesting Bears footage on tape/dvd and would like to trade, please contact
me and I'll be happy to discuss. I repeat, though, as much as I'd like to
help you out...put yourself in my position of being asked by hundreds of people
for just one copy of a game. Can't do it.
