Today is a special day for the owner of the Chicago Bears.
While the season might be lost, it’s not taking anything away from this special day for Virginia McCaskey.
The reason for this is her celebrating her 100th birthday today.

With a century of life in the books, fans were giving their reactions.
One fan made it known that she’s the G.O.A.T., and that she approves of the tribute to her 100th birthday.

But with her being around for a century with the team, she’s earned the nickname “Mama Bear” with one fan.
Happy Birthday “Mama Bear!”

However, not all the birthday wishes came with just happy tidings for her 100th birthday.
For a segment of fans, they used her birthday as a chance to tell her to “sell the team.”
Happy birthday! Sell the team 🙂

With 40 years as the principal owner of the Bears, the team has two Super Bowl appearances under her leadership.
While the team only won one Super Bowl, she at least has a history of getting the Bears to a Super Bowl.
But some fans don’t realize this, because of the horrible season they are seeing with their team now.
While the Bears didn’t have a good season, it shouldn’t take away from the special moment McCaskey is having today.
