Friend Encounters: Bruce Herron and Scott Bridges

Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.

Bridges Scoreboard Restaurant and Sportsbar is a great place for fun and food in northwest Indiana, near my dad in Griffith. We have enjoyed many delicious meals and interesting sports guests there.

Co-owner Scott Bridges runs a top-nothc eatery and cool celebrity appearances. Sometimes they host podcasts, while some are just random special appearances. Either way, they are all well worth the trip.

One of his most recent athletes was former Chicago Bears linebacker Bruce Herron. Drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the 1977 NFL Draft, Herron ultimately spent his entire five season career with the Bears. Herron played 71 games, starting one. He had a fumble recovery in 1981. Since then, Herron has remained active in the Chicago area.

A former player at the collegiate level himself, Scott has lots of sports contacts. Although none are announced right now, I am certain Bridges will have many more athletes appearing, especially during the Bears season.

Follow Bridges Scoreboard on Facebook for news and guest appearances. Go to Bridges for great food!
