Now, we normally don't put helmets on the lions until one of our hallowed Chicago teams has made it to the final championship game/series, but we've decided to make an exception for Bears vs. Packers.
Tomorrow we'll be adorning one of our lions with a Chicago Bears helmet (last used for the 2007 Super Bowl and currently waiting on the museum's loading dock) and dressing the other lion with an over-sized Bears scarf and earmuffs. For those of you attending the game, take note—weather.com predicts a high of only 22 on Sunday!
Feel free to join us (as well as Artie the Lion and Staley the Bear) at 10:30 tomorrow morning for the installation on Michigan Avenue. Bear down!
