Was at the game yesterday and was a posting a bit from my phone during all the craziness in the game thread. Of course, we saw the obligatory 'it's just rain, pussies' comments and the ubiquitous 'Bear Weather' nonsense.
Just because I'm an argumentative bastige, I felt like bitching. Yes, it was inconvenient. Yes it was boring. Yes it cause many already buzzed dumbasses to become very drunk dumbasses. Yes, my DVR didn't tape the whole thing.
They did a great job at Soldier Field. Pre warnings, announcements, et al. Of course, you had the 'we ain't moving' dipshits in the 400 level, but it all worked out. For those who offered such deep and well thought out musings of 'the pussification of America'...yes, we are in fact pussified, but this has nothing to do with it.
There were 60,000 souls in one place that is open and featured steep wet stairs. Many were drunk.
This 'it's just rain' consisted of/accounted for:
- 77+ downed tornadoes
- 6 dead and possibly growing.
- Hundreds of homes and lives destroyed
- certain towns (Washington) experienced 'utter devastation'
- Washington, IL experienced an F4
THAT was the storm system that was moving on Soldier Field.
But hey, people's Sunday afternoon on the couch wolfing down Cheetos was interrupted.
