Charles ‘Peanut’ Tillman took issue with a local Chicago teacher’s homework assignment, and actually (allegedly) took the time to respond to the teacher on the actual homework assignment.  The assignment in question reads:

The Packers play the Bears 4 times in two seasons. The Packers, being a much better team have an 80% chance of winning each game. What is the probability that the Bears win all four games?
What is the probability that the Bears win at least one game?

The girl tells Reddit the following:

My math teacher assigned the above question, and Peanut was promoting his charity at my dad’s running store. I was doing my homework, saw the question and realized it was perfect. I asked for just an autograph on the homework, but being the awesome individual he is, he wrote this gem. My teacher could not stop laughing. I got outta homework for a whole week thanks to good ol’ number 33.

Tillman’s response reads:

Mr. Amrein,

This is Charles “Peanut” Tillman of the Chicago Bears and I’m shocked that you would have a problem like this for your students. The probability that the Bears would win in my opinion is 100%. Please do not and I repeat DO NOT send them home with math homework that is disrespectful to our team, city and our beloved Chicago Bears.

Your All Pro Corner
Charles “Peanut” Tillman
Geaux Bears

P.S. Bear Down

Easily the best part of Peanut’s response is when he refers to himself as “Your All Pro Corner.”  Brilliant.
