Tailgating innovation

We are in Seattle and in a big lot and since it is legal in Washington they passed around a Seahawks pipe.

Carl, the DBF Santa

Carl Claus, delivering his bag of merriness to the Chicago Park District.


A few leakers here, but in general, a pretty good effort in the South Lot.

Shotgunning 9-13-15

Why do girls always have problems shotgunning?

Bears vs. Packers 9-13-15

To our dozens of readers!  Here is a nice update of some of the sights and sounds of Soldier Field, associated tailgating lots, and the drunk participants in this theater therein.

As always, security was tight.  Hey - hand over your booze!
 Some guys are just cheap.  But hey, I will give this dude credit.  Pretty creative.  Boston Strong! Go Bears!
 Carl and this gentleman got into an argument that ended up heated at times in the pisser line.  Of course we know this one is an obscure jersey, however the owner of said jersey insists Tom Waddle is a legend of some sort.  It was pretty surreal as to his steadfastness in his argument.
 While I always think it is a good thing for a dad to do things with his boy, playing beanbag by a smelly dumpster amid several thousand badly behaving, intoxicated football fans isn't exactly my idea of how best to bond.  Regardless, this guy is likely doing more for his boy than 95% of fathers everywhere so kudos.  Two soon to be obscure jerseys also add to the photo.

Drunk Bear Fans 2015

For some reason we didn't get that many drunk photos this year... well perhaps it is because this correspondent split 50% of an excellent bottle of gin before the game.

We did see some damn obscure jerseys with these two. Marcus Robinson played last for the Bears in 2002... that's 13 years ago, for those of you at home who are still counting. And Orton... well 'nuff said about him.

Drunk Bear Fans in Green Bay

This article describes the fans arrested at games in Green Bay. Not surprisingly, Bears games and Vikings games have the most arrests, and most of those that they arrest are out-of-town fans, although the stadium staff claims (unconvincingly) that they don't target opposing fans.

I laughed when they mentioned how many more arrests there are for night games than day games, and they blatantly cite that you have more hours of drinking prior to the game if it is at night as opposed to being at noon. No sh*t, sherlock. The most drunken event Dan and I have ever attended in person was the Wisconsin / Nebraska night game (Nebraska's first game at Madison) which started in the evening and the parking lots were completely packed by 6am. That's 12+ hours of solid drinking before the game even starts, which brings out the best in everyone.

Another factor is that if the Slack fans are found being drunk, they can take away their season tickets, which is a giant disincentive. They'd probably kill themselves or their family would kill them on their behalf if an arrest or ejection caused the loss of those tickets. Once a friend of mine got a ticket for smoking on Dan's Bears' tickets and we received a warning which sucked but hey we are in section 17 out of 17 sections so it isn't quite the same as losing tickets which represent literally the only interesting thing to do on a Sunday in northern Wisconsin.
