Now finally, there’s some Bears news. IF the 2011 season happens, it has been reported that the Bears will be traveling to London, UK to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The last time the Bears played overseas was a 1997 preseason matchup against the Steelers in Dublin. The last time they were in London was in 1986, fresh off their Super Bowl 20 victory, to face the Dallas Cowboys in the preseason.
The game would be a home game for the Buccaneers, as if the Bears would give up one of their home games that they have sold out 224 consecutive times.
I know a couple of Bears fans in Europe who might enjoy this. Ahem.
