By now, everyone should know how I feel about the Bears.
I respect them, even though I hate them.
The same respect cannot be said about the stadium they play in: Soldier Field.
Consistently known as having one of the worst playing surfaces in the league, yet another nugget of goodness was added to the not so stellar reputation for the spaceship by the lake.
A recent inspection by the health department revealed 21 critical violations of Soldier Field vendors.
Among some of the highlights:
- eight cases of food kept at unsafe temperatures
- three cases of vendors that had broken heating or cooling devices
- several instances of employees not having access to running water, soap or paper towels
In fairness, the Bears do not own or operate Soldier Field-that distinction belongs to the Chicago Park District. The Bears are the entity most associated with Soldier Field, and will no doubt have to answer for this latest embarassment to the franchise.
