And the sleeves were plain blue when we wore the throwbacks too:

A fine cameo in there by Dick's fellow Illini and Bears great and paradigmatic salt of the earth Chicago guy Ed O'Bradovich. I miss the days of he and Doug Buffone doing the postgame call-in show for the Bears.One of the all-time greats. I hope there is a good turnout for the dedication.
