Happy Birthday to a Lakeshore Legend

Chicago Bears, NFL Films Shorts, Paul Camarata

You know the Kansas Comet, Sweetness, and the Refrigerator.  Today, meet Fishhook Fingers.  He’s a living Chicago Bears legend, and not long ago, our Head Research Librarian and noted football historian Chris Willis sat down with John Siegal to capture some unique stories from early Bears history. Along with cinematographer Jim Barry, and recordist Jay O’Hare, Willis visited this former Monster of the Midway who won three NFL championship rings and is still the owner of a singular distinction among former Bears.  Find out what it is, and hear never before told tales of Chicago sports, from a man worthy of a toast today as he celebrates a special birthday.  Here now, we proudly present the exclusive NFL Films short, “Lakeshore Legend.”
