Bears vs. Seattle Playoff Game

The Chicago Bears had a great day and beat Seattle. Next up is Green Bay at home.

We had a four jet flyover which was epic. The crowd was really pumped up for the game.

A couple of years ago we stopped tailgating at the South Lot and moved to the Adler Lot, which is right by the Adler Planetarium along Lake Michigan. We were able to park along the grass and got some great views in the morning.
Gerry and his brother Terry cooked up an incredible feast including this Gumbo. Thanks again for the food; I would bet cash money that our tailgates feature the best food at any lot near Soldier Field.

Some guys next to us put up a huge tent and had an actual large jukebox. They said it was hooked up to the internet (they brought power) and they played a wide range of very annoying tunes.

The Chicago Park District makes a big deal about their pat-down policy. You can see how effective it is given that the row behind us was able to smuggle in a variety of beers and the like.

Also there will be big updates over at "Drunk Bear Fans" - the most important site on the internet.

Man, that gumbo looks good!

Looks like you guys got the better end of the Cutler deal. Good on ya.

Thanks, Chris.

Those mussels and the added salt water dorado made it better than it had to be. The aroma was intoxicating and the flavor was delightful in the 15 degree chill.

I think the most amazing thing was that that jukebox and all that other sh!t (heaters, tents, etc.) that those guys had next to us was totally gone by the end. Like they were never even there.

Huge thanks to Dan, Carl and Da Bears for a GREAT and memorable day! Oh yeah, that jukebox had a playlist I'll never forget, too. Maybe a few fudgepackers can take a spin on the concussionmobile next week.
