I admit, this doesn't have much of anything to do with the Bears, but I don't care.
The Chicago Rush are returning to action as part of the new arena football league, Arena Football One. I know a lot of people look down on arena football, but I loved it and I'm so happy to see it coming back to the Allstate Arena next year. Even though technically it's a new team in a new league, they've hired coach Mike Hohensee again, and have signed former Rush QB Russ Michna, fresh off an undefeated championship season with the Chicago Slaughter of the Continental Indoor Football League. (The Slaughter are coached by Steve McMichael, by the way. There's your Bears connection.)
