For the record, the Chicago Bears Club started in Decatur in the year 1919. After two years they moved to Chicago (1921). They played their home games at famed Wrigley field until the start of the 1971 season. Now they play at another famous and well-known field, Soldier Field. The Chicago Bears have won nine National Football Championships, one of which was the Superbowl after the 1985 season. During that season, the team recorded what was called, “The Super Bowl Shuffle”. This rap song hit forty-one on Billboard’s Top 100 list that year. It was also a Grammy Award nominee.

The Chicago Bears have had their ups and downs throughout history and have played over 1000 games since 1920. In November of 2010, they received their 700th win against the Dolphins with a score of 16 to zero. New this year, for the Bears is their online photo store.
