Awesome Bears Pic – Image from page 287 of “Chess and playing cards” (1898)

Featured Flickr Phins Image

This is just a little something outside the norm, occasionally I’m going to show you guys a random picture from Flickr that is tagged with “Chicago Bears”. I think it’s a good 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 Bears Fanatics like it!
