Sports continue to show us time and again how it helps us get through difficult times. We just experienced an amazing tribute to those who lost their lives during 911 by the Bears and the entire NFL last week.

Little did we know, just a couple days later the Bears would be helping their Leader get through the sudden passing of his mother. Good teams become good families during difficult times.

Lance Briggs will travel with members of the Bears family like Lovie Smith, George McCaskey, Ted Phillips, Jerry Angelo and Bob Babich to New Mexico on Saturday for the funeral of Brians mother, Lavoyda Lenard.

Above is a portion of Lance on this weeks Countdown To Kickoff on this topic.

You can see CTK every Thursday night at 11pm on CSN
