10 thoughts after the Bears' loss to Lions - Chicago Tribune

10 thoughts after the Bears' loss to Lions - Chicago Tribune





10. Speaking of records, Lions center Dominic Raiola became the first player in Detroit franchise history to start 200 career games. Peyton Manning, Charles Woodson, Justin Smith and Tom Brady are the only active players with more career starts -- pretty good company for Raiola, who grew up with former Bears center Olin Kreutz.

“It was a lot more special doing it with this group as tight as we are, as close as we are,” Raiola said. “That’s what makes it special. I can share it with this whole group and I can really share it with Detroit. I grew up myself with this city and we’ve been through a lot in 14 years. We’ve been bankrupt, we’ve been 0-16. You keep kicking us down and we keep getting up. There is something to be said for that. I share it with them as much as they share it with me.”






Well said.

The hero of Oracle’s extraordinary comeback to win the America’s Cup last year, the Sydney sailor will go head-to-head with an Australian Olympic crew for the prestigious honour after the five finalists for the top award in the sport were revealed.

Spithill is firm favourite to also win the title of World Sailor of the Year in November after orchestrating one of the greatest comebacks in world sport, when Oracle came from 8-1 down to claim the America’s Cup — exactly 30 years after Australia II’s historic victory.
