Afterwards, I met up with the Brothers Mathews, whom I have written about in my offline blog but not on my online blog. There are four brothers, Colin, Brendan, Devin and Kiernan. All of them are successful and smart. Back in my Morningstar days, I worked with Colin and Brendan and Devin's buddy Simon is Bill the Bear's boss at Northwestern. Small world. Anyway, I met them out at around 10:30 or so at a local bar and hung with them for two hours while we caught up. Very good fun and I miss hanging with those guys.
Here are some pics!
Me on the field and Doug going into the locker room.
Me at Julius Peppers locker (I'm sure that's NOT his jersey) and Briggs and Urlacher's lockers.
Cutler and Hanie's lockers right next to each other. And the schedule still up from the last game played, the NFC Championship game against Green Bay. Very detailed.
Just a picture of the bathroom in the locker room. Interestingly enough, in a professional football team's locker room, they still have handicap stalls. Not sure how often a handicapped person gets on the football field, but whatever.
A sign on the mirror in the bathroom. Do you really need to tell people this??
Now THIS is a jacuzzi. A big walk in tub....awesome.
This is the tunnel that leads to the field that the Bears use every home game.
My seats are in this picture as taken from the field.
Doug Chowing down at the buffet in the party suite. Have another shrimp Doug!!
Here are our guests in the suite: Jim Morrisey and Keith Van Horne.
Here's Tom Thayer and the soon-to-be Chairman of the Board, George McCaskey.
Here's the Lombardi Trophy for Super Bowl XX.
The field from the 100 level. Can you see what's wrong with this picture?
