Chicago Bears Reunion

The Chicago Bears and their fans celebrated the team's future with the unveiling of New Soldier Field during Monday night's nationally televised game with the Green Bay Packers. The team's glorious past was also saluted when the Bears honored members of their 1963 NFL championship team during a special pre game ceremony. Each returning player from that legendary team was presented with an authentic reproduction of the same vintage Riddell model "RK" suspension helmet that was used during the 1960s era. Each helmet was personalized by Helmet Hut to reflect the specific face mask style that was worn by each player. For these heroic "Monsters of the Midway" nothing else could inspire memories of their glory days like their old suspension helmet! Please enjoy these candid "behind the scenes" shots that were taken exclusively for Helmet Hut readers.






In attendance tonight was Rudy Bukich, Ronnie Bull, Jim Dooley, Joe Fortunato, John Johnson, Bob Kilcullen, Chuck Mather, Johnny Morris, Larry Morris, Richie Petitbon, Mike Pyle, Roosevelt Taylor, Bill Wade, Bob Wetoska and many many more.  Also a quick glimpse of owner Brian McCaskey as he gets a big affectionate Bear claw hug.

 Tony Medlin enters his 17th season with Chicago and seventh as the Bears head equipment manager. Following the 2000 season he earned the Whitey Zimmerman award as the NFLís top equipment manager.
