... because the field at Soldier Field isn't playable.

You can't make this stuff up.

Running tweets from the B***s beat reporter from the Chi Tribune, and others:

Quote:
@BradBiggs: #Bears have cancelled Family Fest at Soldier Field tonight. The event will not happen.

Usually the Soldier Field turf looks unplayable in Nov-Dec. This is a 1st. Turf not ready for Aug. Blame Chicago Park District, not #Bears.

What's totally inexcusable here, though, is the event doesn't get cancelled until people are already on their way to event.

#Bears have pulled U-turn and headed to Bourbonnais for closed practice tonight.

Night practice at Soldier Field has always been a pain for players, coaches, support staff. This takes it to entirely new level.

No word yet whether or not #Bears have informed Ravens the practice has been cancelled.

@ChrisHarrisNFL: Headed back to ONU to practice tonight. Can someone explain to me how a NAIA college practice field is better than Soldier Field #confused

Soldier Field GM Tim LeFevour: "It was a miscalculation on our grounds crew's part. They did not get enough water on the field."

Memo to Chicago Park District: #Bears scheduled to play Bills in 8 days at Soldier Field.

@skjensen: People are still filing into Soldier Field and have no idea this has been canceled. They gonna be mad...

@skjensen: Over 10,000 tickets were sold for this Family Fest #Bears

@skjensen: So fans can have complimentary food and non alcoholic beverages. But then what? Stare at reporters trolling around the field?

@skjensen: Wonder who's gonna eat the loss? They have to refund over $80,000 in tickets, not to mention food, fireworks and non alcoholic drinks #Bears

just poor planning all the way around. The Bears should have verified a week ago that the field was indeed ready or been screaming about it. They are a professional franchise. Things should not be completed in the very last minute.
