Bears say Mike Ditka’s 89 will be the last number they retire
"Mike Ditka will be the 14th Chicago Bear to have his number retired. He will also be the last.
The Bears, who have retired the most numbers of any NFL team, have announced that they will no longer retire numbers after Ditka’s 89 is retired at a Soldier Field ceremony this season."
“If there is going to be a last one, there is no more appropriate one than 89,” Bears owner George McCaskey said in a statement.
The numbers behind this - just like the numbers behind Walter Payton's passing - are pretty amazing.
Here's just a taste:
Ditka's number 89 will be retired on December. 9, 2013.
The announcement came on Friday 5/24 which was day ONE (1) of an 89 day cycle that will conclude on 8/20 which is Leo (356) days from August 11, 2014 the Divine Birthday of Jesus Christ. 5/24 (524) is 131 from ONE (655) = 131 prime X 5
89 days from 12/9/13 brings us to March 8, 2013.
When you add Jesus (15131) days to 20130308 you will arrive at August 11, 2055, the Divine Birthdate of our Lord God Jesus Christ in 6 BC.
Leo (356) = 89 prime X 4
Leo is the astrological sign for the Divine Birthmonth of August whose ruling planet is the Sun and which corresponds to the Human Heart.
Ditka last played for the Chicago Bears in 1966. 66 is 23 "I (9) Am (14)" from 89.
"I Am...." is our Lord's original name and title given to Moses on Mt. Sinai - i.e. "I Am...the Lord thy God..." Exodus 20:2.
Sixty Six (66) cycles of Leo (356) days - 23496 days - prior to 20131209 brings us back to August 11, 1949 which is our Lord's 1955th Divine Birthdate. 1955 factors into 23 "I (9) Am (14)" X 85
