Smells like football once again. The Chicago Bears are getting ready to kick off their 2010 training camp. It is so close that the team has even posted traffic advisories on which roads not to take into Bourbonnais on their website. Zack will be at the training camp so we’ll be supplied with updates, hopefully pictures, and that such. You can discuss training camp here with many other fans. The discussion will be lively on our forums and on the home page so be on the look out! Bears football is back.
The Chicago Bears will kick off Staples Bears Training Camp presented by Chase on Friday, July 30th on the campus of Olivet Nazarene University in Bourbonnais, IL for the 9th consecutive year.
