Bears fans flip bird while Tebowing, but fake Mike Ditka is respectful (PICS)

We gave photographer Eric Gruneisen an interesting assignment: Get snapshots of folks Tebowing at Mile High Stadium before the Denver-Chicago game, whether they're backing the Broncos or the Bears. As you can imagine, he had better luck with Broncos lovers. As for Bears fans, some played along, some flipped him off and a Mike Ditka lookalike embraced the spirit. Check out samples below and then view the entire slideshow, "Tebowing trend: Not dead yet!"
