ESPN recently debuted an 8 episode docuseries titled “We the Fans” which follows several Chicago Bears season ticket holders during the horrendous 2016 NFL season. The series looks at the fans and their gameday traditions, what the Chicago Bears means to them and how it affects their relationships with friends and family members. The series is narrated by Terry Miller who is a Chicago resident and Soldier Field beer vendor. Mike Ditka and Steve McMichael also make cameo appearances in the pilot episode.

The subjects of “We the Fans” include the Tounsel family, Mike Schaefer, Brian Reusch and Sylvia Giacomuzzi and all are season ticket holders in section 250 at Soldier Field. 2016 was the worst regular season outing for the Chicago Bears in team history; the Bears finished 3-13 and were dominated by rivals like the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers.

The series will air two episodes every Tuesday night from April 11th to May 2nd. Fans interested in catching up on the series can visit to watch the first two episodes.
