We Were The Champions Inc.:

"First, and most obviously, you need a championship season...People get misty about seasons, not dynasties. There also has to be something likable about the team other than their victories. It's also important that the team forge a team identity." OK 1984 Detroit Tigers, where is Bless You Boys Enterprises, LLC? Or Best April Ever, Inc? How about 1984: The Year that Lance Parrish Learned That You Shouldn't Put a Bottle of Whiskey in Your Back Pocket While Fartin' Around at the Sleeping Bear Sand Dunes, PLLC?

I would be very, very disappointed if I was told there would be bears at our next corporate outing and it turned out it was just Jim McMahon and Walter Payton. Unless they attacked and ate an elk or something. In that case, I would be excited.

Dude, Walter Payton is dead. That would actually be kinda of exciting now that I think about it. Maybe zombie "Sweetness" could eat McMahon's brain or something. 'Course, that wouldn't be much of a meal though.

Oh. I didn't know. Well, I'd definitely show up at my next corporate function if they told me there would be a dead bear there.

hey Sam, the article suggests "a minimum of 3 Bears per event, please". So I think the scenario needs an additional Bear. Maybe the Fridge hanging around buffet table or Mike Singletary staring at everybody.
