Ex-Bear Brian Urlacher turned some heads at a Lake Forest bingo hall this week. The NFL free agent was described as “vocal and vivacious” during a three-hour bingo tournament, loudly informing fellow bingo players where to pick up their cards and where to sit.
“What a lovely young man,” said bingo enthusiast Gladys Freeberg. “He wasn’t very good at bingo, but he sure knew how to point us in the right direction. He also complimented me on my hip replacement, and I gave him my doctor’s number.”
Urlacher managed to win one game, although he tied with 97-year old Herbert Livingston. Livingston was declared the winner when he beat Urlacher to the prize table, collecting a set of cloth coasters purchased from the dollar store.
