In the NFL, players usually have Tuesdays off during the season. But this week, Chicago Bears fullback Tony Fiammetta spent some of his Tuesday on a practice field, albeit a pee-wee-sized one.
Fiammetta surprised the players—and some of their parents—of the Frankfort Square Wild Cats Pee Wee teams who were practicing near Hilda Walker School. The first-year Bears player was there thanks to Tinley Park resident Brian Malpeli, whose 11-year-old son plays for the Wild Cats.
Malpeli, general manager for Zeigler Chrysler Dodge Jeep in Downers Grove, which provides some Bears players with cars during the season, asked Fiammetta if he could talk to the kids about playing in the NFL and answer their questions. Fiammetta also showed them how to do a couple moves and then signed autographs and posed for photos.
