Ditka Suffers Stroke, Still Feels Fine


ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Mike Ditka has suffered a stroke, but he tells news that he feels fine. Ditka suffered the stroke Friday. But doctors report that it was “very minor”. Ditka suffered a heart attack in the 1988 season with the Bears. Officials have yet to tell him if the stroke is related to the heart attack.

Ditka, now with ESPN, won’t return to the network this Sunday. The cable channel confirms to news that Ditka will take a break as he undergoes testing. No return date has been announced to news.

Ditka said he suffered a “very minor stroke”. He says he noticed it after his hands weren’t responded well. But he tells the Chicago Tribune “I feel good right now and it’s not a big deal.”

In July 2004, Republican Peter Fitzgerald vacated his Senate seat for Illinois. Republican nominee Jack Ryan withdrew his nomination following a local scandal. Quickly Illinois leaders were pushing Ditka to run for the seat.

At the time, Ditka was a described an ultra conservative. Ditka would have faced off against newcomer Barack Obama.

Ditka declined, Alan Keyes instead ran and lost. In 2008, Ditka was asked by news if he regrets his decision not to run against Obama. Ditka said “It would have been interesting, I’ll tell you that.”

Mike Ditka vs. Barack Obama? 2004 Senate Race Revisited Today

ST LOUIS (LALATE) – When Mike Ditka met Barack Obama today, history buffs revisited a possible 2004 showdown between the two. Mike Ditka met Barack Obama today along with 1985 Chicago Bears team. The ‘85 Bears did not get to go the White House in 1986 after winning the Super Bowl because of the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. But today, history buffs are wondering if a decision by Ditka in 2004 changed American history.

In 1985, Ditka was the Bears’ coach. He told news today that it was a great pleasure to have his team finally honored by the White House. “On behalf of the 1985 Chicago bears, we consider him one of us. We’re very proud that you honored us by bringing us here. It’s only 26 years after the fact, and five administrations, but thank you.”

But with that, national news and history buffs are looking back to 2004 as well. In July that year, Republican Peter Fitzgerald vacated his Senate seat for Illinois. Republican nominee Jack Ryan withdrew his nomination following a local scandal.

Quickly Illinois leaders were pushing Ditka to run for the seat. At the time, Ditka was a described an ultra conservative. Ditka would have faced off against newcomer Barack Obama.

Ditka on the advice of his wife ultimately declined the offer. Instead Alan Keyes ran for the seat and lose miserably. In 2008, Ditka was asked by news if he regrets his decision not to run. Ditka said “It would have been interesting, I’ll tell you that.”

Mike Ditka Barack Obama


Mike Ditka may have changed history! Mike Ditka has something to do with Barack Obama becoming President, suggests a new report.

Mike Ditka was actively pursued by Republican heads in 2004 to run for an Illinois Senate seat against a newcomer. That newcomer was no other than Barack Obama.

Ditka passed. Alan Keys ran against Obama and the rest is history.

Today CNN asks – what if ….. what if Ditka agreed and beat Obama? “It would have been interesting, I’ll tell you that,” Ditka tells CNN .

Looking back, the former head of Da Bears is still not sure if he would have won Da Ticket.
