This Was Shown on TV

I'm really happy that football is happening again this year.

Some other dudes who, I would say, are quite pleased about this developing development, are the guys at Kissing Suzy Kolber, the worldwide internet's best NFL-themed humor blog.

Anyone see the Colts-Bears Sunday night game last night? We must count our blessings that we are fortunate enough to be living through the NeckBeard era in Chicago. But also, we must count our curses that we live in an era which allows stadia to be named things like Lucas Oil Stadium in Indy. Nothing says forward-thinking, and cutting-edge technology quite like fossil fuels.

This is a quintessentially Indianapolis football stadium, accommodating the special needs of its constituency. From the FAQ section of the website:
Where can I park my RV?

The Indiana State Fairgrounds Campsites, 1202 East 38th Street, Indianapolis, is approximately 6 miles from the facility and open year-round. Amenities include paved pads, water and sewer hook-ups, 30-amp service, pay phones, picnic shelter, and playground. It is fully accessible to those with special needs. Call 317.927.7510 for more information.
Lake Haven Retreat, 1951 West Edgewood Avenue, Indianapolis, approximately 7 miles from the facility, is a full service campground with daily, weekly, and monthly rates. Sitting on 20 acres, the retreat has a lake stocked for fishing, restroom, shower, and laundry facilities, wireless and high-speed internet connections. Call 317.807.2267 or visit for more information.

The most disturbing thing about the new playing area, though, is the weird dirt. LOS has a retractable roof, which means that the field of play does not include a draining system, which means that the grass is some type of synthetic surface. I couldn't find any information on the LOS website about what system they use, but I did notice that these miniature mushroom clouds kept popping up during the game, pretty much wherever the players stepped.

Anyone understand what's going on here?

And check out those mad MS Paint skills. The Captain, indeed, was here.

Look at Chicago Bear number 69, standing on the sideline.
