Players, fans react to ’85 Bears ’30 for 30′

ESPN’s highly-anticipated “30 for 30″ film “The ’85 Bears” debuted Thursday night, and in case you missed it, it was a bit of a tear-jerker.

The film, which chronicles the rise and fall of Chicago’s only Super Bowl championship team, included more than one moving moment – most notably coach Buddy Ryan’s emotional letter to his former players.

But there were lighthearted moments as well – like when discussing William “Refrigerator” Perry, who quarterback Jim McMahon described as “a big, happy fat guy.”

The documentary, narrated by Vince Vaughn, was received well by fans and former players alike:
