You may know Brian Urlacher for a number of different things. Bears legend, billboard icon, that guy whose jersey the obnoxiously loud dude you met at a party was wearing, etc. He contains multitudes.
But sometime in the near future, apparently, you may know Brian Urlacher as part-owner of the New York Mets:

Urlacher has joined a group with Travis Kelce, DeMarco Murray, Joe Thomas, Bradley Beal, and Mason Plumlee, all of whom "are part of a group of investors who have joined power couple Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez in a bid to buy the New York Mets." Urlacher's even quoted!
"Being a former athlete and having a chance to be a part of a group trying to purchase a professional team, it's pretty cool," Urlacher told ESPN on Monday. "It's especially cool to be involved with Alex. Alex is the man. You've got Kelce, Joe Thomas, DeMarco Murray. It's great to be in a group with them."
The group has already put in a $1.7 billion bid, presumably from all the revenue that RESTORE has accumulated thanks to their mission of being in every single Chicago sightline possible. There are, in fact, too many punchlines to this story to pick one (ok fine I lied, there's only one way for Bears fans to grow more miserable and that's to adopt the Mets), but just know that I heartily approve of each and every one you decide on.
