The NFL preseason continues.  The Bears and Seahawks clash to kickoff week 2 of the preseason.  Craig Shemon here, with the Shemon and Sheppard Show, playing Wiki-Pete-ia every weekday at 4:45-ish on ESPN Southwest Florida!  Today we take a look at the storied Chicago Bears and the Seattle Seahawks in our trivia match-up.

In case you are not fortunate enough to be lucky caller number nine at 239-337-ESPN, then you are in luck!  Play at home and dazzle your family!  Stump your co-workers with useless knowledge!  Amaze your friends with your newfound intelligence!  Below are the actual questions AND ANSWERS heard during Wiki-Pete-ia on our show.

The Chicago Bears, of course, date back to the beginning of the NFL.  Some of the game’s most famous names played off the coast of Lake Michigan.  The team peaked during the 1985 season with one of the best defenses of all-time, on their way to a Super Bowl title under Mike Ditka.  The Seahawks, once an expansion team in 1976, have a strong history as well, having played in several Super Bowls.  It will be interesting to see how they do this year without Russell Wilson.  For now, enjoy the Bears and Seahawks as they do their preseason battle.  Let’s play Wiki-Pete-ia!   Good luck!
