Tillman responds to teacher's pro-Packers math problem

In nine seasons with the Chicago Bears, cornerback Charles "Peanut" Tillman has been a thorn in the Green Bay Packers' side. The veteran defensive back has four interceptions, four forced fumbles and two sacks against the Green and Gold during his career.But Tillman may have made his biggest statement against the Packers by what he wrote on a young girl's math homework regarding a question about the Bears-Packers rivalry.Tillman was out promoting his Cornerstone Foundation at a store in the suburbs of Chicago. A teenaged girl, who happened to be the daughter of the store's owner,approached him with a question on her math homework.The question read:"The Packers play the Bears 4 times in two seasons. The Packers, being a much better team have an 80 chance of winning each game. What is the probability that the Bears win all four games? What is the probability the Bears win at least one game?"Not only did Tillman respond with an autograph for the young girl, but he also wrote a note to the teacher who, according to Deadspin.com, is John Amrein of Round Lake Middle School.Tillman writes:"Mr. Amrein,This is Charles "Peanut" Tillman of the Chicago Bears and I'm shocked that you would have a problem like this for your students. The probability that the Bears would win in my opinion is 100. Please do not and I repeat DO NOT send them home with math homework that is disrespectful to our team, city and our beloved Chicago Bears.Your All Pro Corner

The White Sox three outfield prospects are creating a lot of buzz at spring training.
