Mike Ditka has ended the Packers curse in new commercial

SHARE Mike Ditka has ended the Packers curse in new commercial

Seeing Mike Ditka wearing team apparel for anyone other than the Chicago Bears is a bit of a shock. Seeing the Super Bowl winning coach wearing a Packers sweater made some fans question their entire fandom.

Last month in a McDonald’s commercial, Ditka put on the green and gold. In a pleasant surprise to those all worked up about the coach’s apparent double-crossing, the Packers seemed to take a hit. The then undefeated Packers went on to lose each of their next three games. The Ditka curse was in full force.

Sunday, however, things changed. In a new ad, Ditka pulls off the Packers sweater for his now famous Bears sweater vest. Just as Ditka removed the Packers sweater, the curse was removed.


A few hours after the commercial first aired, the Packers were back on the field against the Vikings. Aaron Rodgers and Green Bay dominated Minnesota and won 30-13.

The Bears, who ended their winning streak Sunday with a loss to Denver, play the Packers Thursday. The long time rivals will have the final game of the day on Thanksgiving.
