Bears fans’ hopes and dreams for the 2017 season were found dead of an apparent shooting at 1 p.m. on the city’s west side.

The suspects include starting quarterback Mike Glennon, Atlanta Falcons tight end Austin Hooper and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers according to the Chicago Police Department.

Hopes and dreams left a Near West Side apartment around 11:30 a.m. to buy a case of Old Style and some gametime snacks before heading to friend Fire GarPax’s nearby apartment to watch the Bears game according to police.

At halftime, the hopes and dreams went outside to smoke a cigarette when the shooting occurred.

The hopes and dreams were last seen spouting off about how “this is the Bears’ year” and how rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky is the chosen one.

The hopes and dreams were 32 years old—born just before the 1985 season. According to people close to the victim, his first word was “Ditka.”

Also injured in the shooting were Fire GarPax and the Cubs’ lead in the NL Central.
