If you’re heading to Soldier Field on Sunday for the Bears vs Chiefs game, leave yourself a little extra time. The Bears are urging fans to come a little early as they implement added security measures.
The Bears will enact extra security measures, scanning game attendees with a wand. If you are screened, you will be asked to remove all metal from your pockets.
The hope is that wanding will eventually replace patdowns.
Do we really need to do the extra security? Instead of wasting money on these guys we should send them home to play online bingo. And is a cold December Sunday afternoon, when temperatures are supposed to hover in the mid to upper 30’s, the right day to roll out a new procedure? It’s the second to last home game of the season.
While you’re at Soldier Field, beware of the concessions. CBS 2 Chicago reported that inspectors uncovered some violations.
In all, inspectors found 21 critical violations that could have potentially made fans sick. They included eight cases of food kept at unsafe temperatures — either not cold enough or hot enough to protect against a food borne illness; three cases of vendors that had broken heating or cooling devices; and several instances of employees not having access to running water, soap or paper towels.
Hey, as long as the beer is cold enough, I’m good.
