But for those countless fans wondering why exactly the Bears didn't go for #BearDown, it wasn't for a lack of trying. The team replied to several tweets inquiring about the commonly-used phrase, saying it wasn't available because of "Messy legal stuff. Phooey."
The University of Arizona has the phrase "Bear Down" trademarked, according to their website. So for now, Chicago will continue to #FeedDaBears. Besides, it could always be worse: [[392621511, C]]
