(08.26.10)  Dave Statis, (CQ), 41, is a Chicago Bears fans if there ever was one, and has a basement bathed in Bears stuff to prove it. In fact his favorite players are both Bears linebackers Dick Butkus and Brian Urlacher (whose #54 jersey he's wearing).  He's lived in the Charlotte area for about four years. Except for the drywall he's done the painting, flooring and decorating himself. That's "Sweetness" Walter Payton on the wall in the background.  John D. Simmons - jsimmons@charlotteobserver.com
