OSS: Sacked in Seattle

New, comments

A romantic tragicomedy for the ages!

Everyone needs someone to make them pee a little...

One day, a Quarterback named Russell called a talk radio show under the name “Sacked in Seattle” at the behest of his 67-year old Coach Pete. While on the air, he poured out his heart about the loss of his defense, and the offensive line that was never there for him. He proudly states that he has remained confident and unafraid when on the field, despite the adversity he routinely faces. Regardless of the challenges, he is content with his life. Unbeknownst to Russel, Coach Pete, who has always hated his Quarterback’s confidence and bravery, seeks to finally find someone who can strip those things away from him forever...

Half-way across the country, in Chicago, Khalil Mack, new edge rusher for the Chicago Bears, is listening intently to the broadcast. As he hears Sacked in Seattle lay bare his soul on the air, he can’t help but think: “I could be the one. The one to finally break this man. I have to meet him”. So, he writes a letter to “Sacked in Seattle”, care of the radio station. Coach Pete finds the letter, and realizes this may be his best opportunity to finally break his Quarterback’s spirit for good! So he sets up a Monday Night Football game between his Seahawks and the Chicago Bears. “Could he be the one?” he thought, “The one to finally ruin my Quarterback once and for all?”

And, so, Russell and Pete boarded a plane on Sunday, and set off for Chicago. On their way to a date with destiny, and Khalil Mack, at Soldier Field. Could this be the game? The game Russell finally breaks? Pete can only hope. But maybe. Just maybe, fate is on his side...

Alright guys, just a quick OSS for the weekend. I didn’t have a ton of time, so I decided to do something simple, and this just popped into my head. I know, it’s another movie poster, but I promise. It’s just a coincidence. They won’t all be movie posters. In fact, I had an illustration planned for this OSS, but I just didn’t have the time to get to it. Hopefully next time!

Here’s a quick little gif of the basic process for those that are interested. As always, all credit to the original photographers and artists:

We had a number of good suggestions last week, and I may end up doing one or two of them eventually. I thought about doing an Avengers team poster as suggested by Hester23Jordan, but I decided to wait until I could get everyone in the navy jerseys without having to do a jersey swap on the new guys. If you have any suggestions for a Bears related photoshop or illustration, share them in the comments section. If your idea is chosen, you will receive credit in the post!

Feel free to share any bears related photoshops or illustrations of your own! I’d really like these articles to be a space for people to get creative and share. Also, go ahead and share what music you’re listening to currently! I’m always looking for new stuff since I’ve generally got something playing while I work. Just something to keep the deafening silence from driving me insane. Anyway, here’s mine:

Currently listening to: Terryfold by Chaos Chaos and Justin Roiland (you’re welcome)

Bear Down everyone!
