Just found this nugget today. Check out Jim McMahon in the back wearing his Bears jersey. WTF?

Packers White House 1997

I know he was part of the Bares' win in 1985, but seriously...

I am far more concerned about Brett's hair cut.

However... a great post Indeed.

Shouldn't have been wearing a jersey at all. Everyone else is showing a little class by having a jacket.

Are you sure that's not photoshopped? That's REALLY tacky, and I wouldn't think his teammates would go for it either.

After googling it, it looks real. Numerous references to it.

Reportedly, McMahon said at the time that he wore it because the Bears never got their WH visit after winning the SB--it was cancelled because of the Space Shuttle Challenger crash.

Jim McMahon and I think it was Steve McMichael both said they rode the Packers coattails for the Super Bowl ring. Saying they used the Packers. So, I wouldn't be surprised if it's real.

Whatever the case may be, it's disrespectful to dress like that when at the WH, and really odd to wear a chief rival's jersey when you're celebrating the packers' win. It's from 15+ years ago, so I shouldn't care, but it just seems really tacky from a number of angles.

McMahon really was never a "Packer" in my mind.. never liked cheap shots or things of that nature and think Martin was out of line, but there was a part of me that relished the moment Martin dumped that f#*k on his head.

Epitomized what I loath about QB's, arrogant, pompous, mouthy jackass.

He made for the perfect Bears QB.. someone that I could openly cheer against. Mouth always oversold his candy ass..

Surprises me in the least.. probably still thinks he is better than the rest of civilization. Albeit it at least he put a jacket over the jersey.

At 1:00 you can see him walking out of the WH. He has the jersey under a blazer. He is the back of the crowd and lines up to the viewer's left.

It's definitely real. I got it straight from Packers.com from a facebook post from the Packers.

The clothing looks so out of date in the photo. I didn't think things had changed that much over the years!
