With one day left in the 26 Days of Awesome and to celebrate tomorrow being SulliMom’s due date, I thought it would be fun to ponder naming our child after one of the Chicago Bears‘ first round draft picks throughout history. This, on a night when the Bears did not have a first round draft choice and Tim Tebow goes before Jimmy Clausen and Colt McCoy.
This is all assuming SulliBaby is a boy. We have no idea if it is a boy.
Here are some of the potential names based on Bear first round draft picks as told by NFL.com. This partial list below also provides a decent amount of depression when thinking about the production of some of these players. But the full list also features no less than 20 All-Pros and at least six Hall of Famers (I think, just by sight). Some quick thoughts on this list:
-Three derivatives of Walter (Walter Payton, Walt Harris & Wally Chambers)
–SulliMom would prefer Chicago’s 1940 pick, Bulldog Turner, to go along with Butler.
-My Top Five (Cade, Stan, Otis, Lionel, Rufus)
Dick (don’t call me Espinoza, Butkus. Only UIC Athletics readers will get this)
