I met Pork at the Washington train stop and we walked to Soldier Field. There was good weather in Chicago, and it was warm in the sun so the walk was easy. On the way there I saw a street sign that read, "George S Halas Dr." so I knew we were getting close. As soon as I saw "The Bean" I made my way towards it. I wasn't leaving Chicago without a picture with it.
As we walked by the water with a bunch of other Chicago Bears fans, I forgot how much I enjoy Chicago. Actually now that I think about it, I've never been to Navy Pier also. Oh well. Next time...

Finally we reached Soldier Field and all I can say is that I had no idea that it was right across from the Field Museum! Do you have any idea how many times I've been to the Field Museum?!?! I've been there at least 3 times, but I've never noticed Soldier Field. Crazy!
When the game started, of course I was snapping pictures. I managed to catch the Bears first touchdown, when Matt Forte made it into the endzone. It's a great picture, if I do say so, myself!

Obviously there's a wall display for "Papa Bear Halas" too.
