Enjoy everyone. It has been cold this Fall and all but this weekend will warm up a little. Just bundle and you will be fine. I may be going to the game but I'm not sure what section yet. The food suggestions in the other thread are right on. If your here for the full weekend and want to see things around Soldier Field, there is Shedd Aquarium, The Field Museum and the Planetarium. Great views from around there too.

As for the fans..I've never found Chicago fans in general to be bad, even when I've worn Cowboy tshirts out and about. However another attorney here is a massive Bears fan. He goes to games often and told me that even as a Bears fan, he finds them abusive...even to each other. lol. So I wouldn't talk noise, but just enjoy.

If anyone is looking for a place, rather than a hotel, look at letting out a condo at the Tides (near east) or MDA (lake, near michigan). Both near Grant Park, and both properties are always on my list for biz or personal.

They may be, but red FAN jerseys will stand out far better in the crowd. Navy (Deep Steel Blue) and White will just vanish into the crowd.

Well, since I'm the unofficial "grandma" of this board, and a born worrier, I hope all you guys/gals will be careful. I've heard so many BAD tales of how abusive Bears fans can be. I know Justin was attacked in the bathroom and someone tried to set him on fire. Just stick together and be respectful. This might turn out to be an UGLY game, and a very close one, so who knows what kind of mood those Yanks will be in if they lose a close one.

Stay safe and have a WONDERFUL trip!!

Cool Re: Chicago Game

PLEASE do the following:

(we're working on taking Texan Chick's fan guide and making a how to behave guildine):

(1) If you hear of a tailgate through the grapevine (I have not heard of one for Chicago), unless it is a pay to tailgate, it is probably friends of friends - just a normal old tailgate. When you get wind of these tailgates from the FB group, here, or Texan Chick's blog, it is not Texans event nor is there a corporate sponsor.

So take a 6 pack, offer to chip in (they will usually tell you no) and be grateful for the hopitality.

(2) For the bar events - (I have never heard nor seen of Texans' fans doing this). Show good sportsmanship and realize you're in THEIR city, even if you have taken over a bar. There was a Bills take over Saturday night and we stopped by to say hi to friends (we had jerseys on). They booed, they were jerks, said stupid things like 'go home' (which made no sense) and pissed my wife off so bad we left before we would have stopped being courteous.

(3) I've heard it can be hostile up there. The best way to avoid a jerk or a drunk fool is with a quick 'good luck today' before or a 'good game today' after and carry on your way. This is for your own safety, there are some Texans' fans with war stories from up there.

Signed,

Apparently your mom, lol.

Have fun!!!

Dan is correct. Bears have both Navy & White jerseys. Red jumps out on the camera.
