Willie Gault Is Still Faster And Cooler Than You

While his quarterback is out slinging erection pills these days, ex-Bears wide receiver Willie Gault is still doing what he always did best — running. And he’s running really fast. Faster than most of us could ever dream, and he’s 48 years old.

This is only about .7 seconds slower than he ran the 100 back when he qualified for the U.S. Olympic team in 1980 (the year the Americans didn’t show up in Moscow).

Bears’ Fencik Looks Back On ‘Super Bowl Shuffle’

The GARY (IN) POST TRIBUNE ain’t looking for trouble, they’re just talking with Gary Fencik about the “Super Bowl Shuffle”.

Gary Fencik Chicago Bears

The all-time interception leader for the Chicago Bears, who nowadays serves as a corporate speaker, reminisces about the 1985 song during a talk at the Gary Old-Timers banquet.

But what he remembers most is the reluctance of many Bears to take part in such a musical adventure, especially recording the song & accompanying video before the playoffs even started: “We thought, ‘Wow! This is stupid. We’re going to jinx ourselves.’”
