A birthday bash was under way Saturday night for one of the leaders of the 1985 Super Bowl Bears.Jim McMahon, the man who quarterbacked the team to the championship, celebrated his 50th birthday in Wrigleyville. Several of McMahon's teammates and coaches, along with other celebrities, showed up to roast the man once known as "the punky QB."

Tickets were sold for the event, which included live and silent auctions and featured Bears memorabilia. Proceeds benefited Athletes for Life, a mentoring organization made up largely of former professional athletes.
