Chicago Bears fan Joe Fitzpatrick, 13, enjoys his team’s win over the New Orleans Saints in the National Football Conference championship game from his “box seat” at home Sunday. Joe, a student at Rosewood Middle School, made his game seat from a box that had contained a trampoline. Originally from Branson, Mo., he is the son of Connie Deuser. The Bears are a family tradition — Joe’s grandfather, Frank, has been a Chicago fan for decades.
