CHICAGO (WBBM) – Bears fans tailgated as the winter storm was passing over. You could hear the soft sound of propane heaters as cold fans warmed themselves and their tailgating fare.

LISTEN: Newsradio 780’s Steve Miller Reports

“The temperature’s fine. It’s probably the windiest game I’ve been to in a while,” said Bob Bryk of Palatine.

Bryk of Palatine was tailgating with his neighbors.

“Some hot chocolate. We got some chili. We’ve got a couple of sub sandwiches. We might have a beer or two. We’ve got a little wind protection. We got the one grass spot on the lot,” he said.

Bryk says the cold doesn’t matter. He was going to go no matter what.

“I’m on a ticket… I’m here for someone that didn’t show up. So I’m super-sub,” he said.

As the propane hummed away, Bryk enjoyed the warmth with a bottle of peppermint schnapps nearby.

“We’re comfortable right now. We expect it to be a little chillier by half-time, though,” he said.

Bryk said he would be putting on two more layers of clothing.
