Mitchell Trubisky’s blinking holiday sweater lights up social media
CHICAGO – Bears Head Coach Matt Nagy repeated his mantra of the season to quarterback Mitchell Trubisky ahead of Sunday’s game against the Packers: “be you.”
After the QB stepped up to lead the Bears to victory Sunday, it seems he’s embraced the motto both on the field and in his game-day fashion decisions as well.
Prior to the Bears’ pre-Halloween game against the Jets on September 28th, he dressed up like legendary Bears’ coach Mike Ditka before leading the team to a win over New York at Soldier Field.
He showed up in spirit again Sunday, sporting a tacky Bears-themed holiday sweater that, with the push of a button, would blink like colorful Christmas lights. The Bears gave the look a fitting name: “ChristMitch.”
Ugly sweaters for teams across the NFL are available online, but perhaps unsurprisingly the Bears sweaters appear to be sold out.
While his look got some attention before the game began, fans flocking to social media to celebrate the Bears clinching the division also found video of the young quarterback speaking to the media while his sweater blinked in all its glory.
It’s a look that might not work for everybody, but embracing the mantra of “be you” is clearly working for the Bears so far this season.
