Last month Bears nation was hit with some heavy news. Former Bears' head coach and legend Mike Ditka had suffered a heart attack that put him in the hospital. The Super Bowl champ had to have a pacemaker inserted during his stay at a Florida hospital and the 79 year old is taking it seriously. "I got my ass kicked pretty good there, but I'm feeling a lot better," he said. "Every day I get stronger. I'm not exerting myself. When I exert myself is when I can feel it. So things are good. If you had asked me two weeks ago, I couldn't have said that."
He's looking to take care of his health. "I'm just going to take it easy," he said. "I realize that I have been riding ‘em hard and putting up wet for a lot of years. Time to slow down. I'm not getting any younger. You're only going to live ‘til you die anyway. So it's been a hell of a run."
Our thoughts and prayers go out to coach and his family as he continues to recover.
