What if Michael Flatley, the Lord of the Dance, met the Bears?

Football isn’t the only activity that beats up the body. Chicago’s Michael Flatley, who created “Riverdance,’’ is retiring as a dancer because of physical issues.

“My spinal column is in bad shape,” he said. He also mentioned problems with his knees and calf muscles, two ruptured Achilles tendons, a fractured right rib and a foot-bone fracture.

Or, as Bears coach John Fox would call it, a hamstring injury.
