PLAYERS: Steve McMichael
TEAMS: Chicago Bears
Former Chicago Bears defensive lineman Steve McMichael says he wants to enter the political field after being a star on the football one. McMichael was a fan favorite as a member of the Super Bowl-winning Bears and he says he plans to run for mayor of Romeoville, Ill. McMichael is co-owner of Mongo McMichael's sports bar in the Chicago suburb. McMichael moved to the village in April. He says he was prompted to run by his desire to help the district where his 4-year-old daughter will attend school and conversations he's had with customers at his sports bar. It will be his first time running for office. McMichael discounts his lack of political experience, saying he didn't have any experience at professional football or wrestling and he was successful at both.
