You didn't think we would let this go by unnoticed, did you, Bear Nation?

Today, the manliest long snapper in the history of the world, Patrick Mannelly, set a franchise record for most seasons ever (15) as a member of the Chicago Bears.

Your sexy mustache/ goatee, amazing long-snapping skills, and charming smile have wooed the hearts of Bears fans for years, and we are proud to have you atop this list. We look forward to having you long-snap for the Chicago Bears for another 15 seasons.

Congrats, Mr. Mannelly! Share your favorite Pat Mannelly stories below...
