The Chicago Bears may have found out what their schedule is for the upcoming season on Wednesday night, but offensive lineman Kyle Long had a different bit of competition on his mind as he took in the Chicago Blackhawks’ 4-3 win over the St. Louis Blues.
The win tied things up in the series at 2-2, but for the Pro Bowl lineman, it also means that he’s one step closer to winning a Twitter bet that he has going with his brother Chris, a defensive end for the St. Louis Rams:

That’s some good form there, Kyle.
