Aaron Rodgers and David Bakhtiari threw the first punches in the beverage-swilling viral challenge, but it was Mitch Trubisky and friends who have emerged as the top dogs in the division:
I believe that is what the kids these days are calling “squad goals.”
Trubisky and a bunch of his Bears teammates (including offensive linemen Kyle Long, Cody Whitehair, James Daniels, Charles Leno Jr., and others) attended Friday’s White Sox game in a classic display of offseason team-building and camaraderie. Chemistry matters on the field, but there is nothing like getting together away from the field to truly cement a team’s togetherness. The bond among this group of Bears is so deep, Trubisky even threw out the ceremonial first pitch with his offensive line protecting him on the mound. Every good quarterback credits his offensive line for steering the way to victory, but this takes it a step further.
A clean pocket to work with and good mechanics from Trubisky is going to go a long way this season.
If the NFC North is decided by a beer-chugging contest, the Bears are going to win in by a mile. Especially with Long’s veteran leadership and Trubisky’s youthful exuberance leading the way:

Now that we’re done here, it’s time for the Cubs to get Mitchell and his friends out to Wrigley. And if the first pitch goes well enough, there are some open spots in the bullpen he could compete for (and probably win based on pure arm talent alone).
