Bears Fan Shows Amazing Memory During Cubs Rain Delay

Bears V Buccaneers

We’ve all been there, the dreaded rain delay.

There’s really not lot you can do during a rain delay but hang out, talk to people and drop a couple of hundred bucks at the food stand to buy a dog and a beer.

One thing a person can do to keep themselves occupied is to start talking to random strangers, finding out a bit about them and what makes them tick.

Dan Katz, a podcaster (Click for link) and a Cubs fan found himself in that situation today as he and a stadium full of Cubs fans were stuck in a lengthy rain delay on Banner Night at Wrigley Field.

The team hoisted their World Series banner to open the season after ending a 108-year championship drought, but events were put on hold by a driving rain.

During the wait, Katz found a Chicago Bears fan to talk to who had an amazing talent; the ability to give the final score of every Chicago Bears game played in the last 15 years.

Katz, an avid Twitter user, shared his find with the world:

It’s an amazing feat, remembering all of those scores... let’s hope the Bears give him more wins and less losses to share in some future rain delay. Helmet tip to Jack M Silverstein for point the tweets out to us!
