Local business owner cheers for the Bears

Frank Stimac, owner of bb Jack's bar and restaurant in Wausau cheered on his Bears in Monday night's football game.

He says he's always been a Bears fan. H
e was born in the Chicago area and moved to Antigo when he was young. But he says his love for the team has never wavered.

Stimac says he tries to be low-key about the Bears in green and gold country. But there is one thing that perhaps gives his loyalty away.

"It's mixed reactions there are some Bear fans believe it or not up here and when they do come in and see my Solider Field banner up they realize that there are some Bears fans around here," said Stimac.

"It's a little different, I never experienced it before, I like to make fun of him quite a bit and we have a lot of fun watching the games together," said bb Jack's manager Malorie Diedrick.

Stimac says he welcomes Packers fans with arms wide open. He says it is all in good fun.
