Last week, I was able to meet Robbie Gould, kicker for the Chicago Bears. He’s actually one of the best kickers in the league and returned the night before from the division clinching game against the Minnesota Vikings. (Which by the way, the Bears had to play at the University of Minnesota on a field that isn’t equipped to handle below 0 temperatures or 63,000 fans!)
The Bears killed the Vikings (40-14) and clinched the division, making it right into playoffs! Brett Favre, who was previously not going to play in the game and decided last minute that he would (imagine!) ended up getting injured and there’s a lot of speculation that that may have been his last game. Robbie, looked super tired and was sipping some Dunkin Donuts as he walked into the cafeteria. He was ultra sweet and really adorable! It was great to meet him! He had such a great game (scored 16 points himself!).
