Coach Ditka has been quite a busy man recently. On Friday he appeared at a campaign rally for Sarah Palin :

“This is the land of opportunity, it’s not a land of handouts,” Ditka said. “If you’re willing to work, you can find a job. I want to say how proud I am because I think Sarah Palin epitomizes all the good things, all the good values, of this country.”
