Featured Flickr Photo

This is a little something outside the norm, every now and then I’m going to post a random picture from Flickr.com that is tagged with “Chicago Bears”. I think it’s a awesome way to display 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 enjoy it!
