We told you yesterday that Bears kicker Cody Parkey was at Soldier Field practicing in real-life conditions after last Sunday’s mess of missed field goals. Apparently some news outlets got the idea to fly over Soldier Field to catch a glimpse while other outlets did not. Those that didn’t contacted the Bear’s organization to complain that they weren’t enforcing the “no practice footage” rule, so the Bears had to come out and ban ABC 7 and WGN from airing any of what they filmed on the news or social media. Savage competition!

Today’s Lack of Intelligence Report took place in Florida. It happened when police were investigating a break-in at a local restaurant. While reviewing surveillance video they ended up finding a completely different issue that took place the night before. The video shows a dude riding up on his bike and sneaking in through a back gate, wandering around and taking things out of a shed and then entering a restaurant bathroom. When the man exited the bathroom he was not wearing any clothes! He then proceeded to sit down at a picnic table, still naked, and start eating a container of instant ramen he brought along with him. He did several other things like play some bongos and do some spray painting before riding off on his bike. He also took about $500 worth of stuff with him. The restaurant isn’t pressing any charges because they say the man caused no harm. Interesting. We will have another report for you tomorrow at 4:50, but you can always catch past reports on our Lack of Intelligence Report podcast!

Rapper Ice-T shook the internet when he announced he has never eaten a bagel or had a cup of coffee.

By now we all know about the less-than-stellar performance by Bears kicker Cody Parkey in last Sunday’s game against the Lions. The Bears won despite 4 missed field goal attempts by Parkey (no points for hitting the post? No fair!). Now there is a report that the Bears organization might open up Solider Field mid-week just so Parkey can get some practice kicks in before Sunday night football against the Vikings. Maybe if he gets some reps in there vs the practice facility it will prevent history from repeating itself. Time will tell.

This week’s Everyday Hero is Danielle Losurdo! Danielle is 19, a full time college student, and runs a rescue for special needs animals. Many of the animals she takes in are hospice cases or neglected or abused. What’s also unique is that they are all reptiles and amphibians, an under served group. Danielle was nominated by us! A conversation about a show topic led to us learning about her passion for animals. She told us “there aren’t a lot of rescues for small animals and I figured someone needs to provide a home for them. They are just as important and when I look into their eyes I look past their scales or teeth and just see an animal in serious need of help.” Danielle also told us she’s been lucky to show sick and dying animals what true loves means and that is her biggest blessing. For all of these amazing reasons, Danielle is this week’s Everyday Hero.
