The Bears pulled out all the stops for this year’s April Fools Day. The team is celebrating their 100th season and today they released their special uniforms to honor the monumental occasion. The team took to social media to announce they will put a 1 in front of everyones jersey number in honor of 100 years of Bears Football. The team went as far as creating the jerseys and having players do a photo shoot with them, as well as creating a video with Trubisky talking about the new jerseys.
“First, I thought the idea was kind of crazy,” Trubisky said. “I’m like, ‘Why are we all changing our numbers?’ But you know what, it’s an honor to be part of this historic franchise. We’re celebrating our 100th-year anniversary and I think it will be pretty cool to put the ‘1’ in front of every single jersey number.”
At the end it was all a good April Fools Day joke that separated the Bears from the rest of the pranksters out there.
