Meet #33 from the Chicago Bears

I was recently invited to Macy’s semi-annual men’s fashion event with a special guest appearance by Chicago Bears Running back Jeremy Langford.


Guests experienced models showing off the latest fashion trends. Keeping the energy up there was a DJ spinning top 40 songs.


If you needed a break from shopping, there was a virtual reality oculus Google game. It allowed guests to step into their football field or rollercoaster in a virtual experience.


Guests could stop by the Michale Kors Men’s Shop where they could enter and win a Michael Kors shopping spree. There was also a chance to win custom shoes by The Sole Revival. The first 150 guests who spent $35 or more had the chance to have a meet and greet with Jeremy Langford. There he took time to answer questions and receive and autograph.

I had the opportunity to ask Jeremy a couple questions.


Tanya Abbey: “How do you separate being Jeremy Langford Chicago Bears running back, to Jeremy Langford who works for the Chicago Bears?”

Jeremy Langford: “Matt Forte taught me that, you should never take anything for granted and that no matter where you are, you are always representing the Chicago Bears and that you should always show your best. You are a brand yourself and you need to put your best foot forward.”

TA: “How do you find time to wind down and stay humble, you are on a huge stage where everyone pays attention and wants to get your attention at all times. How do you wind down and turn off the public figure and become a private citizen?”

JL: “I stay grounded by keeping my family and friends close, they keep me humble and they don’t let me get away with anything.”

Jeremy also added that he understood that his time in the spotlight is short lived and enjoys every minute of it, because he knows once it is gone he will miss it. The few minutes I got to spend with him, proves just that. He isn’t just a running back. He is a very down to earth person, and is very welcoming and personable. He really enjoys being a Chicago Bear and we enjoy having him represent us on the field.
