CHICAGO -- I remember poking my nose into Soldier Field in the late 1980s with my friend Howard Berger on a frosty January Saturday. We were in the Windy City for a Blackhawks game against Toronto the night before and we did a little Chicago sightseeing before motoring off to St. Louis for a Blues game that night. The Bears were hosting a playoff game the next day. That was the only time I was inside the building until tonight and, of course, the "old" Soldier Field is gone, replaced by a beautiful facility inside the famous columns. Decent game, and I finally brought the home team some luck. Back on the road and home tomorrow!
