Another Reason We Love Chicago

2007_02_02_bears_lion.jpgWhile the Bears prepare for tomorrow's big game in warm Miami fans in Chicago bundled up to go out and endure frigid single-digit temperatures with a -15 degree windchill to snap pictures of the city's Bear Pride. Chicagoist is pretty sure Colts fans were sitting inside their toasty homes watching reruns of Gomer Pyle, U.S.M.C., while Chicagoans ventured out and enjoyed their beautiful city.

Fans took turns posing for photos in front of the Art Institute's lions. Meanwhile, out at the Adler Planetarium there were a ton of amateur photographers setting up their tripods to capture shots of the beautiful Chicago skyline with its homage to the Chicago Bears. What a great weekend for Chicago.

We tossed up some photos from our walk through Chicago today on Flickr tagged Chicagoist.
