pitches and wickets and linebackers, oh my

The Bears practiced today at The Oval in London, home to the Surrey cricket team. When the Bears got to the pitch, which incongruously had a giant American football field painted in the middle of it, a couple of cricket players were there with their mallets and things.

Fortunately Brian Urlacher, Lance Briggs and Charles Tillman were in a good mood after their all-night flight here. Jay Cutler even showed off a couple long hits. The transplanted Chicago media were thrilled with their “money shot.”
