Bears ready to be prime-time players on Hard Knocks?

Bears GM Phil Emery is not one to push for spotlight time, and coach Lovie Smith has said in the past that he has no interest in inviting TV cameras and reporters deep inside the Bears whether for HBOs Hard Knocks program or any other pretext.

But Emery is not ruling out having the Bears be the Hard Knocks stars in the tradition of the Baltimore Ravens, Dallas Cowboys (twice surprise), Kansas City Chiefs, Cincinnati Bengals, and New York Jets.

The show did not happen last training camp because of the labor uncertainty and HBO is still looking for a 2012 team. As far as the Bears being that team:

To me its all about football, Emery said. Personally, no, but if that was in the best interest of the club Im sure we would all consider it.

Denver Nuggets fall in me vs. Nuggets challenge

The Denver Nuggets have been hot of late, winning seven of their last 10 games against pretty stiff competition. However, they were no match in a tough virtual matchup on Friday night. 

CSN Chicago associate producer Adam Yingst took on Nikola Jokic and company in #MeVsNuggets, a challenge in which the person watching must eat more chicken nuggets than Denver has field goals. 

Fighting a cold, Yingst powered through 41 chicken nuggets to seal the victory over Denver. If that isn't reminiscent of the Michael Jordan flu game, then we don't know what is. 

Watch this impressive accomplishment and catch some funny outtakes in the video above.
