As a Bears Fan, I've been very humbled that the Walter Payton "Man of the Year" award was in honor of one of the greatest players to ever touch a football.
John Candy was such a great humble Canadian boy who was very passionate about football while being an infamous actor. Long before he even got into acting, he always said that one day he will own the Toronto Argonauts.
He was more than just an owner. He was a "Fans Owner" that cared a lot about his city, people, and his players. Tell me an owner who is on the sidelines with the team, and helps the medical staff cart off a injury player from an injury?
I'd like to see us have our own version, and call it the John Candy Man of the Year.
About 3 years ago, the Pro Football Hall of Fame introduced a new wing where longtime fans are now inducted. I'd like to see the Canadian Football Hall of Fame do the same. How cool would it be where there is a photo of yourself, along with a small Bio about yourself. Your enshrined with other longtime season ticket holders etc.
What do you think?
