Lou Canellis' Bears Bourbonnais Diary - August 1

Posted: Updated:
BOURBONNAIS, Ill. (FOX 32 News) -

My showing at Bears practice didn't draw the attention the Commish did but Robbie Gould stopped his cart to sit and chat (are you impressed?).

I spent the morning talking to Brandon Marshall who will be my halftime feature during the Bears-Broncos game, Thursday, August 9 on FOX Chicago.

If Marshall isn't the best interview on the team, he's the second best behind Mike Tice. The wide receiver puts great thought into all his answers and genuinely acts as though he cares. I won't give away "the interview" but I asked him questions such as, "with Calvin Johnson and Greg Jennings in the NFC North Division, are you the best wide receiver in the division?" and "what's been the most important aspect you've learned about being a Chicago Bear?"

I also interviewed Jay Cutler and wide receivers coach Darryl Drake who were both informative and engaging.

I spent some time talking with Brian Urlacher who was wearing the floppy hat but no pads meaning he sat out Wednesday's practice. Apparently, his knee is a little sore but should be okay for Thursday's practice before Family Fest Friday at Soldier Field.

Tight end Matt Spaeth and I chatted as well, in between working on his blocking. Spaeth told me he spent the offseason and summer working out at home back in Minnesota with Larry Fitzgerald's Muscle and Fitness Strength Team.

Matt said about 30 NFL players work out together in the program, which really pushes the group to get the results they're looking for. If you've never met Matt Spaeth, you're missing out. He's one of the "good guys" in the NFL.

The crowds at training camp have been as big as I've ever seen in Bourbonnais with another solid showing for Wednesday's practice.

We'll see you Friday night at Soldier Field for Family Fest. Say hello if you see me!
