The writer of the famed Chicago Bears song, “The Super Bowl Shuffle” is taking media conglomerate Viacom to court. Julia Meyer is claiming MTV and VH1 played the hit song without permission.
The song was written in 1985 when the Bears won the Super Bowl. Interest in the song is up because its 25th anniversary is approaching. In Meyer’s lawsuit against the parent company of both VH1 and MTV, she says that Viacom is undermining potential sales of the song as its silver anniversary approaches.
The single sold more than 500,000 copies when it first released.
Athlete Dougie videos never get old. During the Detroit Lions Chicago Bears game, Lions QB Drew Stanton celebrated his first ever NFL touchdown by doing the Dougie in the end zone. Stanton got the start as Matthew Stafford still suffers from a shoulder injury. Too bad for Stafford, the Lions lost to the Bears, 24-20 and sly dance moves don’t count for fantasy points.
Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler may have had a horrendous game on Sunday when the Bears lost 17-14 to the Washington Redskins, but apparently Cutler’s love life is going strong. Cutler has been dating reality star and September Jersey Chaser of the Month Kristin Cavallari since the beginning of the season. Cavallari has been chronicling their relationship via her Twitter posting tweets:
8:41PM Oct 23: A guy just came up to me at the airport asking if I wanted acid. Ohh chicago
1:36PM Oct 23: Off to chicago ? its starting to feel more like home than LA..
It seems as if their relationship has taken a step to the next level as Cavallari posted pictures on Twitter of the pumpkins her and Cutler carved. Cavallari Tweeted: Jay and I carved pumpkins. Mines the amazing one on the right
The pumpkin carving is hopefully keeping Cutler’s mind off the headlines. Redskins cornerback DeAneglo Hall told reporters after Sunday’s game: “If I played Jay Cutler each week, I’d be in the Hall of Fame.” Hall picked off Cutler four time on Sunday.
Tennessee Titans defensive coordinator Chuck Cecil disagreed with a refs calls against the Titans and let everyone know about it. Cecil gave the middle finger to the ref after the Titans were called on an a neutral zone infraction penalty. The NFL is expected to fine Cecil between $10,000-$25,000. The Titans have a history of flipping the bird, in 2009 owner Bud Adams was fined $250,000 after he gave the middle finger from the owners box after a Titans win over the Buffalo Bills.
Others who also had unfortunate bad luck in Week 4 of the NFL: Chicago Bears QB Jay Cutler who left the Bears NY Giants game early.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Michael Vick injured his ribs and is scheduled to have an MRI. The Eagles lost to the Washington Redskins and to a familiar face.
