This is a weekly feature highlighting friends who have met celebs.
With the start of the football season yesterday, there is no better Friendly Encounter I could run than this one featuring Jim Gekas and Mike Singletary. Jim is one of the most diehard Chicago Bears fans I know. Singletary is the coach of the San Francisco 49'ers and a Hall of Famer because of his years with the Bears.
Mike is predicting a great year for his 49'ers. Jim is predicting good things from his Bears. Unfortunately, I think both will be wrong.
This post isn't about the negatives though. It is about positives. Nothing is more positive than Jim's song Mr. Robinson, about Jackie Robinson, baseball and life. If you haven't listened before, give it a listen now. The previous predictions might disappoint them and us, but this song won't. You'll love it.
