Can’t say I was really a fan of Mike Ditka when he was coach of the Chicago Bears. After all, this was the guy who tried to run up the score and used William “The Refrigerator” Perry against our beloved Green Bay Packers.
But Ditka was nothing if not entertaining, whether berating Jim Harbaugh for calling an audible or bitching at reporters after the game.
Today, my dislike of Ditka has faded. It’s hard to hate someone who made the idiotic move of trading an entire draft for one player. Besides that, Ditka is still pretty funny and entertaining on ESPN.
Here’s some classic pissed-off Ditka, circa 1988. Also note, Ditka comes to and leaves the interview sans pants (from Kap’s Korner).
