Chicago Bears Mascot Protests for the 99% (Of Bears)
The above picture was taken earlier this afternoon at Soldier Field during the Chicago Bears-Kansas City Chiefs game. As you can see, Chicago's mascot, Staley Da Bear, is in full support of the Occupy Wall Street movement and has occupied the sideline for the cause. Why he is dressed like Jimmy Buffett, we may never know.

Staley's bosses may not approve of his stance, as Chicago's largest bank, Bank One, signed a 12-year sponsorship deal with the team back in 2003.
The Bears lost 10-3, but at least Staley wasn't bear maced.
