Default Bears Helmet Breaks on Statue of Lion

An effort to honor the NFC Champion Chicago Bears hit a snag Tuesday morning when a huge football helmet broke as it was being placed on one of the lion statues that stands guard outside the Art Institute of Chicago.

It seems the frigid weather - often referred to as Bears weather in Chicago - may have been to blame. "They're made of Fiberglas and (one) broke," said Art Institute spokesman Chai Lee.

I wouldn't put too much relevance in that. Now, if it had been a statue of a horse...

Lions and Bears have been rivals for many a year. Don't think the Lion wanted any part of supporting the Bears (even if he lives in Chicago).
