NFC Championship Game: Packers at Bears

It was the NFC Championship Game at Soldier Field! Since I became a Bears season ticket holder in 1999 the Bears have advanced to the playoffs four times. Once as the #1 seed and three times as the #2 seed (including this year). The first two times the Bears were the second seed they lost. However, the Bears won last week while the Green Bay Packers defeated the #1 seed Atlanta Falcons which sent the NFC Championship game to Soldier Field.
My original plan for today was to attend the Flyers …

Game Day in Green Bay: Bears at Packers

NFL Game Day is “slightly” different when traveling with a baby. We woke up early and had to take care of Dylan rather than sleeping in and going directly to the bars before the game.

Since we were up early we decided to drive around Green Bay to check out “the sites.” Of course, there really weren’t any, so we stopped at Titletown Brewing Company located at 200 Dousman St. Our hotel’s magazine listed this place as one of the top places to eat at in Green Bay.

My first sporting event of the year had been planned since September. I have always wanted to attend a Bears game at Lambeau Field but for whatever reason was never able to do so. Nicole and I did not plan to travel anywhere this holiday season since it would be our first holiday season with a baby. But, since the Packers were hosting the Bears on January 2, we thought it would be fun to take a road trip to Green Bay for the game.

Monday Night Football: Packers at Bears

For the first time in awhile, the Ultimate Sports Wife and I did not tailgate or go out before or after a Bears game at Soldier Field – which actually made for a calm game day.

Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears
It was Monday Night Football so we arrived at Soldier Field shortly after 7 pm and headed straight into the stadium. The Packers took a late first quarter lead after Greg Jennings caught a 7-yard touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers. The Packers held onto the lead at halftime 10-7.

It was a day I have only participated in two times before – the first time on November 14, 1999 and the second, last year, on November 9, 2008. Yesterday, I attended both the Chicago Bears and the Chicago Blackhawks game in the same day. The timing for the games works perfectly. The Bears start at noon and the Blackhawks start at 6 pm on Sunday – meaning you have around three hours to grab dinner in between the games.
