The Chicago Bears will be on the road tonight, practicing at Vernon Hills High School as a part of their “Varsity Bears” outreach program. With the Chicago Bears on Vernon Hills’ Rust-Oleum Field, the Vernon Hills Cougars’ high school football team will get to practice at Halas Hall’s Walter Payton Center.

I think that’s a fair trade off for the kids on their football team.

The event has been sold out for a while now, and they are expecting about 5,000 people for the 6:00 p.m. practice. Gates open at 4 p.m. and when practice ends, about 8:50 p.m., there will be a fireworks show.

If any of you guys are going to be at the practice and are active on Twitter, be sure to tag @WCGridiron in your Tweets and we’ll share your stuff!

Our own Jacob Infante will be there tonight, but due to a Twitter glitch he won’t be active on his Twitter account.

But you can follow along with him on this account right here.

This is your Open Thread for the evening, so keep in mind that we are rated WCG-MA.
