McMichael is expected to attend the family-friendly event. The Chicago 6 is slated to begin playing at 4 p.m., followed by the Dancing Noodles and Prizefighter. There's no entry fee, but the suggested donation is $20 per person. Funds raised will help defray the mounting costs of McMichael's daily care and medical needs.
McMichael was a warrior on the field for the Bears, a tough-as-nails defensive tackle who played in a franchise-record 191 consecutive games in 13 seasons from 1981-93. He ranks second in Bears history behind Hall of Famer Richard Dent with 92.5 career sacks, an impressive total for an interior lineman.
Individually, McMichael was a two-time first-team All-Pro, a three-time second-team All-Pro and a two-time Pro Bowler. He was named the 19th best player in Bears history in 2019 by writers Don Pierson and Dan Pompei in the Chicago Bears Centennial Scrapbook—the second highest slot for a non-Hall of Famer.
