Cagewriter - Mixed Martial Arts

There's definitely a cultural gap between American athletes and a guy like Fedor Emelianenko. The Russian is a low frills fella. The blogosphere rejoiced last week when they spotted Fedor in his awful 80's sweater during a press conference in Russia before he hit the road for his fight in Chicago this weekend. The sweater came along for the trip. Fedor and his opponent Brett Rogers were invited to the Chicago Bears game yesterday, and there it is, the lucky sweater.

The only thing better would've been Fedor sweater wearing one of Mike Ditka's 80's Bears sweater. Even Lou Carnesecca is getting jealous of Fedor's multi-colored sweater. "Looie," the former St. John's basketball coach, wore a lucky sweater during 18 straight wins in 1985.
