Trump Towers over da Bears' empty seats
Sunday was a perfect fall day to watch football in Chicago as da Bears battled the Detroit Lions in Chicago's Soldier Field. The stadium, on the city's lakefront, was named to commemorate...yes, the fallen who sacrificed all to keep this country free, and the name is deliberately singular. But, contrary to past years, not many watched the game in person, as AP sportswriter Jay Cohen noted:
The Trump Tower in Chicago, the fourth tallest building in the USA (the curved building with the long antenna behind the diamond-shaped roof in the left third of the photo), gazed down on so many empty seats in the stadium as even da once mighty, win-or-lose Chicago Bears couldn't draw a full house.
Somewhere, someone is muttering, "I told you so!"
