Did You Know?

A young “Papa Bear” George Halas (founder of the Chicago Bears and the NFL) was supposed to be on the ill-fated Eastland cruise that capsized in the Chicago River, killing 822 Western Electric employees and family members in 1915, but he overslept and arrived a few minutes after the boat cast off.

A water bottle and tripod serve as stand-ins as Michael emulates Daniel Chester French's statue "the Republic," which stands on the location of the 1893 Chicago World's Fair administration building.
