Free Beer For A Year!!!
If you can make the kick Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey missed, you can get a year of FREE beer!
It's easy to sit on your couch and mock an athlete like Parkey, who wasn't able to hit a last minute, 43-yard field goal to beat the Philadelphia Eagles. (the NFL officially listed the kick as being blocked by the way...)
So, Chicago's Goose Island brewery has a new challenge for Bears fans. They're building a goal post outside their building, and this Saturday, fans can show up and try to make that 43-yarder. Oh, and in addition to bragging rights, you can also win a FREE CASE OF BEER EVERY WEEK FOR A YEAR!
They Tweeted, quote, "A lot of armchair kickers are saying that they could hit that field goal, which we find DOUBTFUL. You're gonna sit there on your throne of potato chips and vape pens and criticize this dude's athleticism? GET REAL."
According to a list of rules they Tweeted out, you have to show up at noon to sign up, and spots will be limited. You get one try, and, quote, "All Goose Island referee calls are final."
There's no word how many people will get to kick, but anyone who makes it gets the free beer deal. There's also no word if employees are allowed to 'ice' the kickers...or if the kicks will be PARTIALLY BLOCKED, which would more accurately reflect Cody's situation.
