Local Boy Makes National News, but .....

Most of the time, you love to see national headlines devoted to local people and events ... MOST of the time ... it depends upon the news.

According to
this report from ESPN-Chicago, "Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher will not play again this season," following a wrist injury he suffered in the third quarter of Sunday's game with Green Bay.

Urlacher is a 'hometown boy makes good' of the highest order, whose fan base has extended from southeast New Mexico to include all of professional football ... an appeal that was not lost upon advertisers. Check out the screen shot from this morning's espn.go.com home page ... featuring both the Urlacher headline, and an Urlacher ad from Nike.

Get well soon, Brian!
