Bears defensive end Akiem Hicks learned the ups and the downs of interacting with fans on a live stream. He ran into a Bears fan in Orlando at the Pro Bowl and asked him what the team was going to do next year.
The fan responded, “We’re going to win the Super Bowl.” Which would have been enough of an answer for Hicks, who approved of the fan’s response.
That was before the fan sent Hicks into a little bit of a panic when he added, “Parkey’s not gonna ruin it next year.”

Things like this happen in the wild. It’s a risk you take when you interact with fans, especially when the double-doink is the last game the Bears played in.
The most telling part of the moment might have been the fact that Hicks doesn’t disagree with him.
