“Anything that Brian is doing, of course should be entertaining,” said former Chicago Bears and current Illinois Fighting Illini Head Coach Lovie Smith this past week.
“I’m sure they’ll all have a great time with it,” Smith responded when we informed him exactly what Brian Urlacher would be up to this Sunday.
Smith was spot on, and perhaps even understating it a bit. Urlacher was one of the many celebrities appearing at the 17th Annual Chicago Polar Plunge Sunday morning at North Avenue beach, benefiting Special Olympics Chicago. Urlacher met with fans, took lots of pictures and served up bratwursts for Johnsonville, on a 65-foot semi-truck grill which can reportedly cook 2,500 brats an hour.Follow paulmbanks
