Lance Briggs starts a "New Era"

| 8 Comments | No TrackBacks

Bears Pro Bowl linebacker Lance Briggs couldn't think of a more natural partnership than the one he signed last year with New Era.

Hats have always been a part of his wardrobe.

"I have a steady number of hats," Briggs said Tuesday. "I wear hats to match my outfits."

New Era has become the exclusive and official headwear supplier for the NFL, and players will be wearing them on sidelines next season.

Briggs, who is real particular about his hats, couldn't be more thrilled.

"Nothing against [Reebok]; I love Reebok gear," he said. "But, its kind of golf hatty. They were cool hats. But its just that New Era hats are cooler."

He had numerous New Era hats before he signed his endorsement deals. He prefers a slight bend in the bill and fitted caps (size 7 1/2), and he's partial to the San Francisco Giants and Pittsburgh Pirates, as well as hats related to comic books.

And one more thing.

"I'm a California kid," he said, "so I keep all the stickers on it."

I have a New Era cap carrier. Holds seven or eight. Don't get wrinkled.

Currently, his red Superman hat with a black symbol and his all-black Transformers hat with a Decepticons logo are his favorites.

This weekend, he's headed to L.A., to represent New Era at the Summer X Games.

I'm back for the year to tell you fans how it is! GO BEARS!

Ahhh Oh joy, we are saved.

Did mommy finally let you use the credit card so you can get a subscription? Or do you just not want to use Facebook over at the trib? That made it hard for you to use a bunch of names over at the trib by changing to facebook. To bad for you.

Lance just wanted Comic book hats, and money. Cool hats but a lot of them are a little over the top for my taste. I love the fact that he wants to wear the stickers cause that's what they do in Cali. Like that's what he did when he was a kid, whatever. Let me leave a bunch of crap on my hat, that will look good. Poor kids used to leave stickers on their hats to show they were authentic, I don't think lance has that problem. I wonder if he used to where hs colthes backwards back when Kris Kross was around. OMG a trend I have to copy that and waste money on it hurry they are almost out of Cabbage patch dolls and Bennie babies. Oh goodness the new Jordans are out, I need to pay 800 dollars for a pair of gym shoes I will never where and that are usually ugly as hell just to say I have them. I am not pathetic, not pathetic at all. OMG it says limited on it, LIMITED, I have to buy it.

Big C.....talk about name changes. I'm The Original Tripper34 that told wesuckchitown and vprichadoko how it really was so they got me deleted from the Trib and proceeded to steal my name to try to make me look foolish with "I'm first...." what packer trolls.

I didn't say name change, I said using a bunch of names. Everyone knows I am the BigC, because told everyone, never hid it. Besides the reason it was BigC was because Creighton was taken. Unlike you posting under 20 different site and getting banned for it and losing his name because of it. That's why you couldn't post under Tripper34 anymore. I never got banned, never got a warning, and I always got a ton of compliments. In fact people love me over at the trib. Everyone seemed to hate you though, and your posting of "First" on every page was pathetic.

You ever figure out who got you banned? : ) I mean someone could have done that just for kicks, because they like watching kick and scream about your name. The best was when I convinced the board that you were not you and that the guy posting under your old handle was you cause he was acting like a giant tard and we all new tripper was a giant tard and everyone agreed. Hahahaha, oh was that funny. "No I'm the real tripper, no I am." "Shut up you stole my name." "You shut up your trying to steal my name." And me right in the middle egging the whole thing on. I convinced the entire board that you were retarded and that we should all be nice too cause you couldn't help yourself. Oh good times, good times. Wesuck and Vprick got you banned? Hahahaha, those two idiots? The three of you were like a disfuntional family.

I love the fact that you annoced you are back to tell the fans how it is. Hahahaha, made my day. You never talked about football, you just fought with those two goofs. Of course I helped egg it on but. It's funny you talking about people posting under your screen name, and gosh did it make you mad. Karma.

I remember when you kept trying to tell the board that the BigC was Creighton. And like 10 people replied "Yeah we know, everyone knows." Oh man are you thick. Hey remember when you cut and pasted some stuff I wrote over here over at the trib? Your all like see this is what he thinks, and I wrote "yeah thats pretty much what I think cause I worte it." I got like 20 thumbs up for that.

Try not to get banned again, I need the laughes. "First, Tripper is first, first, first, first." Hahahaha.

Big C...little d..whatever, thanks for clearing things up.....YOU are wesuck, vprick, and the rest of the packer trolls! You can't read either. I told you someone stole my name and was posting the first, first, first trash.....oh wait...IT WAS YOU!!!!! TROLL!

so who really is behind all these names? there is wesuckchitown, viprodchenko or whatever, creighton who sometimes talks football and seems to know his stuff (or regurgitates it from PFF) and then creighton who just talks crap about other posters. I just want to hear what people from Chicago think about the subject of the article (excepting this meaningless piece) and less about who ratted out whom to the mods. And who is this mysterious 'Sybil'??

That's right Tripper blame it on someone else. Sure now I am all those other guys. You keep thinking that. Gosh you ae smart. We all know it was you man, that's why the entire board except for the other fake names you used hated you. That's why you got banned. By the way everyone thinks your a Packer fan. Maybe you should try not posting under the name Packerbacker.

"It wasn't me, it wasn't me!" Sure it wasn't. Your always at the scene of the crime and your never the victim, funny how that works.

Ha I wondered the same thing about Sybil. Google it, it's a nutty chick from a movie called sybil.

Oh and if you want to know who uses fake names just ask the writers, Like Brad Biggs busted Tripper on this blog for using a bunch of names in past back in the day. So Tripper ran over to the trib, then he got banned for posting under a bunch of different names. Although it's not just him lots of people do it, and as Sean has pointed out, there are people who post under my name.

Oh and yes I do use PFF for stats, please tell me you don't use ESPN for your stats.
