Default Aww, Brian.....

Brian Urlacher: Cubs! I used to watch WGN growing up as a kid.
Shocker, right? I would have thought his buddy Mike Brown would have turned him around.

If Urlacher wasn't a Bear, I would despise him. It isn't because of the scrubs remark but I consider him a few cards short of a full deck.

I guess I have to go with "friggin' miracle" since the posters here obviously make any professional baseball person look like a moron.

I have a buddy who played Div. III football who is convinced Brian is on 'roids. His argument is that Brian weighed 185 until his senior year in college, then went to 245. His brother who played at Lake Forest remained 185, which is apparently the normal weight for men in his family. Then there were all the leg injuries in 2004 including that weird calf injury..............

Ditka
Belushi
Murray
Urlacher

Both the NCAA and NFL have real testing programs (unlike MLB). Besides, it's not that unusual for a man to put on 30-40 pounds of muscle at that age. Your body is still maturing. It's when you do it in your 30's and you suddenly grow a Charlie Brown head that things get suspicious.

Agreed. Dwight Howard grew two and half inches during the summer and put on twenty pounds. I seriously doubt if he's taking steroids.

A lot of players put on weight during their jump to the NBA or NFL.

You should be ashamed of yourself for at one point in your life having any respect for Jim Belushi.

Bernie Mac is missing from that list, especially since he grew up on the south side, only to be caught singing at The Urinal.

I don't blame Urlacher a bit. Where did he grow up? There was no baseball team in New Mexico, and the only ones on TV regularly were the flubs and the Braves. If our management wasn't so shortsighted, the Sox would have been on WGN a lot more, and we would have more fans across the country.
