For some sports fans, meeting players, coaches, and/or executives from their favorite teams is an exhilarating experience; maybe they got an autograph, a quick selfie, or got to chat with someone that they idolize and really seemed to connect with.
The Chicago Bears are generally accessible to the fans during various times of the year, and often times there are airport or hotel encounters, maybe seeing someone out shopping or in a restaurant, etc.
Have you ever met any players, coaches, or team executives before? If so, who was it, and what was the experience like?
Sometimes meeting a public figure can either change your viewpoint of them (for better or worse), or solidify your opinions of the type of person you thought they were.
Tell us about any run-ins you've had with the Chicago Bears, and anyone that is on your bucket list that you have yet to meet.
This is your Friday Night Open Thread... Have fun!
