So last Sunday, while watching ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown with Chris Berman, I was confused by why Coach [Ditka] was so irritated when asked about the trip to the White House. Apparently, a member from the Super Bowl winning ’85 Chicago Bears was absent from the lineup of those who accepted President Obama’s invitation to the White House. I later found out the reason behind Coach’s irritation and I agreed…

Okay, Dan Hampton, obviously a Bears’ member, said he wasn’t attending the event because he didn’t like President Obama [Is this 3rd grade?]. Are you serious? Now, I’m the #1 proponent of the mindset that you shouldn’t have to do what you don’t want to do [It’s really the spoiled, only girl and youngest of 4 boys mindset…] within reason. You know, it’s okay if I don’t want to go to the work happy hour or luncheon, but I probably won’t miss the quarterly project meeting just because I think it’s a bore… See what I’m saying?

So no, Hampton may not be trying to be the #1 draft pick or the next Cowboys’ coach, but you just never know. And, the diaper-like attitude he carried is draining and extremely disrespectful. This is America… so you can take a stand and have an opinion, but really?… And in this particular situation he’s the one who ends up looking like the fool. It’s a crack up because his teammates didn’t let up on letting him know how much of a fool he was with his dramatic protest. I’m sure though that Hampton had the bomb cook out in place of going with the rest of his team… Good times!
