Do you like the Chicago Bears? Can you kick a 43-yard field goal in the snow? If you answered yes to one of these questions and no to the other, you’re probably at Goose Island Brewing Co. in Chicago right now.
In honor of last weekend’s 16-15 loss, Goose Island Brewing Co. challenged fans to be able to kick a field goal of the same length Cody Parkey missed from. However, there’s two problems. The field goal was, in fact, blocked and it’s snowing in Chicago on Saturday.
This is going exactly how we expected.
If anyone can manage to kick one successfully, they’ll receive a pair of tickets to any 2019 regular season game, round-trip airfare and hotel accommodations for two nights. Winners also will get a shot at making a 65-yard field goal, for Super Bowl tickets. Originally, Goose Island Brewing Co. wanted to give away free beer, but were not allowed.
Kudos to Madeline Kenney of the Chicago Sun Times, for braving the elements to capture miss after miss. To be completely fair, it looks nearly impossible in these conditions.
That being said, if only someone could step right up and drill a field goal, or two, that would be really something, wouldn’t it?
We’ll update this post if we notice anyone put one through the uprights.
