Kristin Cavallari announces on Instagram that 'Very Cavallari' has ended

These are dark times, there is no denying it. 

When Céline Dion wrote Near, far, wherever you are/I believe that the heart does go on, she was clearly not considering how we felt about the E! smash hit 'Very Cavallari.' For the last three years, the Bears' result on Sunday only mattered until 9/8 central, when it felt like Hermes himself flew down from Mt. Olympus to gift us mere mortals a piece of the heavens: 39-46 minutes of Kristin Cavallari and Jay Cutler "challenged in unexpected ways, as [they] redefine their inner-circle of friends, their marriage and the roots of happiness."

And now, reader, it is us being challenged in unexpected ways:

Good night, sweet prince. What will we use as an excuse to avoid confronting Sunday Blues now? Was there anything more emotionally fulfilling than a pristinely-timed Jay Cutler eye roll? Yes! There are *lots* of things more emotionally fulfilling than a pristinely-timed Jay Cutler eye roll. But that was our thing. He did that, for us, probably. Our eyes rolled, but our hearts warmed. And now ... just ... nothing? Only a deep, black, endless void of unfathomable emptiness remains. Am I supposed to just ... watch something else? In this economy? The audacity to even suggest such a thing boggles the mind. 

Rest In Peace, 'Very Cavallari.' But like, we're all on the same page about a reunion special, right?

Soldier Field to host drive-in movie screenings through July

You're probably not going to be able to watch the Bears at Soldier Field any time soon, but next week you'll be able to watch a movie there! That's kind of the same! 

That's because a program called 'Chi-Togther' "will provide Music Entertainment and Movie Screenings each night that will also include carpool-style concerts plus food and beverage options for all ages."

The event will be held in Soldier's South lot, and anyone who signs up will get a free popcorn! Honestly, it's worth it  just to get out of the house and grab yourself some free kernels. 

Movies being screened include Groundhog Day, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, and Fast and Furious (hell yeah). Also Shrek.

12 greatest Chicago Bears wins in Soldier Field history

The Chicago Bears franchise celebrated 100 years of football last season but there are a few more notable anniversaries on the horizon.

Next year will mark the 50th anniversary of Bears football at Soldier Field. And the columned stadium itself, which opened in 1924, is nearing the century mark.

While the franchise played a vast majority of their home games at Wrigley Field in its early years, a smattering of contests took place at the lakefront facility. The first of which was a 10-0 win over the Chicago Cardinals on Nov. 11, 1926. 

The Bears moved away from Wrigley Field after the 1970 campaign, landing at the AstroTurfed Soldier Field the following season. The team’s first game there — as official tenants — gave the franchise a positive jolt. A late Kent Nix touchdown pass gave the Bears a 17-15 victory over coach Chuck Noll’s Pittsburgh Steelers in front of a capacity crowd. The win was one of the bright spots in an otherwise pedestrian 6-8 season.

Alas, there were better days ahead.

Let’s take a look back at the 12 greatest Bears wins at Soldier Field:
