Report: Ditka suffers minor stroke
 
Former Chicago Bears head coach Mike Ditka was feeling “good” Friday after suffering a “very minor” stroke, according to a published report.

The Chicago Tribune reported that Ditka, 73, was hospitalized Friday after the episode.

Ditka told the newspaper he was playing cards at a suburban Chicago country club when he noticed his hands "weren't working quite right." He also said he was having trouble speaking.

But later Friday, Ditka told the paper, "I feel good right now and it's not a big deal."

He said doctors called the stroke “very minor.”

Ditka, who also coached the New Orleans Saints after a Hall of Fame career as a tight end, suffered a heart attack in 1988 while coaching the Bears, but has not had any major health issues in recent years, the report said.

He now works as an analyst for ESPN and owns a Chicago restaurant.

Wish him well. He gave us what he had left, and didn't have much to work with.

A football player's coach.

Least favorite Saints coach of all time.

It was more about him than the team.

Wish you better health coach.
