What kinds of stories does Bob have to share?
On January 8, 1989, the 49ers would play the Bears in Chicago for the NFC title, the winner going to the Super Bowl. The 49ers won handily, as impressive a road victory as they accomplished. But that’s not what I remember of that time. What I do remember is what happened as I was sitting in Mike Ditka’s office four days before the game.I was interviewing the Bears coach for the Press Democrat. Ditka was notoriously ill-tempered. Many media were careful to parse their words so as not to enrage him. Which is why I remember so clearly what Ditka did in the middle of my interview.
