You know who sucks? Yup. The Chicago Bears… still.
We were reminded of this fact when we saw this video of Bears running back Matt Forte calling out some Chicago TV host for not being more complimentary towards him.
That is indeed as awkward as it sounds, but it gets even more awkward. CSN Chicago’s David Kaplan, the TV host in question, takes Forte’s jab at him as an opportunity to question Forte about why he didn’t show up for the Bears’ Piccolo Awards luncheon. Forte received a Piccolo Award, but decided to remain in Florida with his family instead of attending the luncheon.
So what did we learn there?
- Matt Forte doesn’t know the definition of slander.
- Matt Forte really wishes he would have gotten one of the McCaskey’s phone numbers so he could have called them to move the event back. And as we all know, you can only ask the person in question for their phone number. You can’t ask anyone else or, in Forte’s case, call Halas Hall, explain who you are, and ask them for a McCaskey’s phone number. Not allowed.
- Both of these guys are idiots.
