Weather, beer situation at Soldier Field growing dire

UPDATE: Hooray, the game will return at 2:25!

The game is officially suspended now, and we can only consider ourselves lucky that we are not among the huddled masses, yearning for sustenance, receiving none. Meanwhile, the desolate Chicago winter deathscape awaits them in the coming weeks, and all they wanted was to enjoy a football game to harvest the warm memories necessary for surviving the season.

But no! No. Once more, punishment.
