19. Bill Swerkski's Superfans

Air Date: 9/28/91
Starring: George Wendt, Chris Farley, Mike Myers, Robert Smigel, Siobhan Fallon, Michael Jordan

"Bill Swerkski's Superfans" is almost as good as drinking a cold beer on a Sunday while watching your favorite team kick the crap out of your most hated rival. While Mike Myers and Robert Smigel are great as fellow Chicago sports fans, it was Chris Farley who ultimately took this bit to a new level, especially with his character having heart attacks throughout (you can blame it on the Polish sausage).

Even Mike Ditka himself made appearance in 1993. After the original sketch aired, Chicagoans everywhere had two brand new catch phrases ("Da Bears!" and "Ditkaaa!") and a new set of ultimate sports fans to look up to. However, the one thing Bill Swerski could not provide was a Bears championship.
