Some Good News From Soldier Field: New Grass

It may be a difficult task finding any bid of good news from Chicago these days regarding the Bears, but, we will take what we can get.  Reports this afternoon inform us that the atrocious playing field is being re-sodded this week.

The playing surface at Soldier Field for the Bears-Rams game Sunday should be considerably better than it was a week and a half ago, as the entire field is being re-sodded.

The four-day re-sodding project is scheduled to be completed this afternoon.  The sod has been growing in Sugar Grove and was trucked into Soldier Field over the weekend.

Some of the Bears and Eagles players had problems with their footing in their game Nov. 22 and complained about it afterward.  Divots of turf kept coming up as players dug in their cleats.
