Seen and Heard at the Bear Game

As usual, there were a lot of interesting things to see and hear at the Bear game last Sunday. While not everything has the high honor of being posted at the most important site on the internet, Drunk Bear Fans, these are some interesting odds and ends.

Click on any photo for larger.

Below you see a Red Explorer with a guy standing there. These guys made the COLOSSAL mistake of ridiculing a Chicago Police officer while he was clearing traffic. The cop finally said to them "YOU WANNA BE A MAN, COME OVER HERE! YOU WANNA BE A LITTLE BOY, GO HOME". Whatever that means. Anyway, if these guys were sober they are easily the stupidest group of people I have ever seen. And if they were drunk, they are still pretty stupid.
We got to the game early as this year we park at the Adler Planetarium. By getting there super early we avoided 1) the insane cash parking line and 2) got this cherry spot right on the park. This photo sucks, but right behind those out buildings is the beach and Lake Michigan. I don't think there is a better spot to tailgate at Soldier Field than this spot.
Some parents don't even pretend to get their kids involved in the tailgating, just hope they keep themselves busy.
As you exit the lot you can't bring any bottles or cans - not sure if you can bring a cup of beer. Looks to me like Miller Lite is winning this battle royale of the crappy beers. Also, seems that the learning curve is pretty flat - wouldn't want to provide a dumpster for these empties or anything, just keep putting the same old one barrel there to get overflowed in three seconds. Then again, it is the Chicago Park District so what do you expect.
I thought this guy was super creative - rather than buying a new jersey, just get out the old duct tape and magic marker and -poof - new jersey, changed from Berrian to Bennett. Love it.

I like the picture of the guy who won't stay in the car mouthing off to the cops with the misty buildings in the background

I would have bet cash green money that he would have at least got a ticket, much less have a tune tapped on his head with that cops beat up service revolver. He got very lucky.

That second image looks as if it were staged for the cover of an Official NFL Licensed Sears catalogue supplement tucked into a November Sunday newspaper. What's wrong with that picture?

Carl from Chicago said...

No that is a good picture too
