The Sports Bank.net: Mike Ditka Finally Stops Endorsing a Product: the GOP

Chicago and NFL icon Mike Ditka has long been a product pitchman first and everything else second. The 1985 Chicago Bears season was 31 years ago; his shtick on ESPN (and every other outlet giving him a platform) has been a de facto cartoon for a very long time already.

It’s been awhile since Mike Ditka has really been about actual football. These days he’s about any company with a product to push who’s nice to him and will cut him a check.
