The best thing about Pat Ryan not running was that Mike Ditka coulda been running. Now that Ditka isn’t… All the good Ditka jokes that will not be.

Ditka vs. John Kerry. Ditka will do to Kerry what da Bears did to the New Englad Patriots during the 1985 Super Bowl. Ditka 46, Kerry 10.

Ditka vs. Saddam Hussein. Ditka will have problems here. Its a road game, played under hot Iraq sun. Ditka 102, Saddam 3. Apparently he has a good kicker.
