Jon’s Bears fandom evolved through his love for Chicago. While growing up in Omaha, Nebraska, Jon had an Aunt and Uncle who both lived in Chicago and were loving, kind, caring people who Jon and his family would visit occasionally. In addition, Jon’s neighbors, who lived across the street when he was growing up, had cable(WGN!) and were big Chicago fans, with family who lived in the Chicagoland area.
In the Spring of 2016, Jon started a Chicago Cubs blog. That blog would combine with another blog called Cubs Insider in January 2017. The founder of Cubs Insider, Evan Altman, and Jon combined forces to run Cubs Insider together. We have now branched out to cover the Chicago Bears.
It’s our hope that we can bring fans Bears coverage in a unique and timely way, just as we have for Cubs fans.
If you ever have any questions or comments you can reach Jon by leaving him a message here.
Thanks for reading and #BearDown.
