Featured Flickr Image

Here is a little something outside the box, sometimes I’m going to feature a random photograph from Flickr.com that is tagged with “Chicago Bears”. I think it’s a awesome way to show off other people’s creativity, whether that is photography, painting, drawing, or some other kind of flickr-applicable art.

I just think it might be a fun way to be a unique Chicago Bears Blog

Hope you all dig it!
