Former Bears coach and Hall of Fame player Mike Ditka was hospitalized Friday after suffering what he said doctors told him was a "very minor stroke."

Contacted Friday evening, Ditka said, "I feel good right now and it’s not a big deal."

Ditka was at a suburban country club playing cards Friday when he noticed his hands “weren’t working quite right,” and then he had a problem speaking.

Ditka, 73, has not had any major health problems in recent years. But in 1988 when he was coaching the Bears he suffered a heart attack. He was back at work within a week.

ESPN producer Seth Markman tweeted that Ditka will not be on the NFL shows from Bristol, Connecticut, this weekend.

A stroke like that must be the strangest thing ever. You're just sitting there minding your own business, and the next thing you know, your hands and fingers start functioning differently, your vision changes - not significantly, but noticeably, and when you try to talk about it, you find you are using the wrong words for the simplest things.

That would be very weird, indeed.

Anyhow, get well coach.

Who would win between Ditka and a hurricane stroke?

Da Ditka.

Dude was a wildman there for a few years when he coached. It wasn't acting either

Hard to believe he's 73.

No big deal. It was just a piece of polish sausage lodged in the lining of his heart.

Probably a mistake sending him a Jim Mcmahan Gift card

Ditka's great. He's an NFL icon. I hope he's doing well.
