If Urlacher’s so good? Where’s his action figure?

The ’85 Bears were so much bigger than just the team that won the Superbowl, who was in the ’84 Superbowl or the ’86 Superbowl? I’m sure it’s written down somewhere. Yes, the Superbowl Shuffle was known nationwide, yes, Jim McMahon was the national spokesman for Gotcha paintball guns…

But beyond all that Refrigerator Perry became a member of G.I. Joe. That’s pretty huge. Was Dan Marino asked to join alongside Duke, Lady Jaye, Barbecue, Flint, Quick Kick, Snowjob, Night Ranger, Devo, and Cutting Crew? No. Was Bernie Kosar? No. Uwe Von Schauman? Nay, I say thee, nay.

The ’85 Bears were a big deal, and this is an Ohioan 1972-1996 speaking here, not some Justin “no shit you liked the ’85 Bears” Kaufmann. I cut out four UPC’s and sent them in so I could get the Fridge.

And the biggest compliment. The BIGGEST compliment of all. The GI Joe Guy. You know the GI Joe guy? The most passionate singer of all time?

The singer immortalized by me in Schadenfreude Radio Episode 38?

Well Fridge got to to have his name shouted by the GI Joe guy. That is an honor.

Click here to watch Fridge’s commercial in the worst fucking program ever invented, Windows Media Player, when it freezes up on you, just hit stop and play again, it usually plays the second time through, but seriously, it’s just as good as quicktime.

By the way, the “Gotcha” guns were HUGE pieces of shit. My cousin and I owned a pair, they weren’t paintball guns, they were kind of paint-ish guns, they shot five feet and didn’t really splat unless you soaked the cartridges in hot water because they always came dried out.

But it did make for a pretty good Anthony Edwards movie, so all is forgiven.
