The name says it all, doesn’t it? Say it with me… Ditka. Ditka, Ditka.
Aside from his role in that terrible Will Ferrell film, Mike Ditka is an iconic figure that transcends football. The classic SNL parody of him is legendary, as is his secure place as one of the all-time great football coaches.
I got an e-mail from Brooke at Geneva Hospitality who asked me to blog Ditka’s upcoming annual golf tournament. This is the 2nd year of the event and all proceeds will be going to “Gridion Greats,” a charity that provides financial assistance and coordinates social services to retired NFL players in need who are pioneers of the game and have greatly contributed to the NFL’s status as the most popular sport in America.
The event is April 16th-18th in Orlando, FL. Wish I could say we’ll see you there… but we’ll probably still be digging out from more snow in CT.
