Bears Trivia Challenge, Vol. 9: The answer

November 01, 2012|RedEye

We put our Twitter followers to the test before every Bears game. At stake: a chance to join our Four Score panel. Enter by 1) Having the right answer, and 2) Following and tweeting @redeyesportschi with your guess by noon Monday with the hashtag #bearschallenge. And by Tuesday, we’ll have as many as four winners!

This week's question:

Entering Monday, the Bears had lost seven straight games in San Francisco between 1987 and 2009. Name the sitting president for each of those defeats, in order. Last names will suffice.


Here are the dates of the seven losses and the sitting president at the time:

Dec. 14, 1987: Ronald Reagan

Dec. 24, 1989: George H.W. Bush

Dec. 23, 1991: George H.W. Bush

Jan. 7, 1995: Bill Clinton

Dec. 17, 2000: Bill Clinton

Sep. 7, 2003: George W. Bush

Nov. 12, 2009: Barack Obama

We had three winners this week: @streetscoop, @bearstradamus and @kylebackman10. Look for them in Friday's RedEye, which also is when we’ll roll the next challenge!
