A Moment With Ifuwanna: Back by popular demand

So I was looking at a few comments and noticed a few wanting my segment to make a return.  So here It is.  New topics such as my interesting encounters at my job will be included.  I will also address the member I think is making noise around WCG, and those who've been too quiet lately.  And lastly, my Bear of the Week, a current or former Bears player who gets their time in the Limelight.

Anyways, let's get to it.

Random Pondering 

Is it me, or does Brett Favre's recent villainous actions remind you of Stone Cold Steve Austin's heel turn at Wrestlemania?

Derrick Mason's retirement is being called one big bluff by Mike Florio.  If that's what it really is, can Mason be the Favre to the Bears' Jets?

Big Ben is the subject in what is about to become a very ugly series of events that might spill into the regular season.  He's been accused of sexually assaulting a casino attendant in Reno.  The Madden curse seems to have stuck early, hmmmmm?  Seriously though, I don't like the guy, but I still can't see him raping a woman.

Has Glenn Earl been cut yet?

Instead of cutting Adrian Peterson, why don't we convert him to fullback?  I'm being serious.

Does anybody really think Vick is still "NFL good"?  Seriously? (put your hand down, Gesiakob)

If I have sex with my night manager while on shift, then tell my boss she told me to have sex with me, and I have to always listen to my managers, you think I could get a promotion?

Interesting Encounter at my job

A man was wearing a Brett Favre TD record breaking shirt.  By his accent and his wildly unkempt hair, I could tell he was a native Wisconsin resident.  I told him that as a Bears fan, I'm just sitting back and watching it all go down.  He said that as a lifelong Packers fan, he's lost all respect for Brett.  He also said if he does join the Vikings, the Packers will never retire his jersey.

Sheesh!  Never? That's the same chance that apples will grow on my mango tree.  I'm sorry, but no way does Green Bay not retire that man's number.  He almost single handedly brought the NFL's greatest franchise (I should hang myself for typing that) out of the dark ages and became one of the most recognizable athletes in the last quarter century.  Now, If he joined the Bears...

Ifuwanna's Bear of the week


I have no clue why this man is not talked about more amongst Bears fans and the NFL in general, but Willie Thrower is a true football trailblazer.  The first African-American Quarterback, Willie never became a star, or even became a full-time starter, but a black quarterback was an oddity, especially for his time.  The league wouldn't see another black QB for 15 years.  Here's to you Willie, my first ever Bear of The Week.  For more information on Thrower, visit

Making noise

Gesiakob. Say what you want about him, but he's earned my respect by putting out a new FP every day. His unorthodox presentations keep me reading, even if I've read the topic before.  Keep up the good work, Gesiakob.

Being Quiet

Tempchad.  Where the Hell is Tempchad?  I need more "Carry my bags rook!"


Thanks for reading, everyone. see you next week.
