Nick Jonas celebrates birthday by renting Soldier Field for football game

Nick Jonas celebrates birthday by renting Soldier Field for football game

Maybe, just maybe, Chicago will play host to the Super Bowl one day. And while there are no immediate plans for the world's greatest sporting event to come to the city, there was a 'bowl' game worth noting that took place on the hallowed grounds of Soldier Field.

The JonasBowl.

Yes, you read that right. Nick Jonas, one of the acclaimed members of the Jonas Brothers, was surprised by his wife with a birthday football game this week that included 20 of his closest friends and took place at none other than Soldier Field. The stadium was rented for the event and was even attended by Anthony Adams.

"My beautiful wife surprised me with a touch football game with some of my closest friends and family on the one and only Soldier Field in Chicago (!!!) followed by a few hours of Topgolf, and then a party where pizza, tequila, cake, and cigars were involved," Jonas wrote via social media.

Let's hope this isn't the most meaningful game played at the stadium this season.

Kurt Warner has no idea what the Bears are doing on offense

With the city of Chicago still reeling from the Bears recent 36-25 loss against the Saints, everyone from NFL analysts to your co-workers are offering up their hot takes on how the Bears offensive game, particularly QB Mitch Trubisky, could do better.

Kurt Warner, an NFL Hall of Fame quarterback with an illustrious history, took to Twitter to give his two cents on why the Bears offense is struggling.

After twelve years in the NFL, taking both the Rams and the Cardinals to the Super Bowl, Warner might just know a thing or two about offense. However, Warner seems just as confused as the rest of us as to what’s not clicking for the Bears. Here’s what Warner had to say.

We all feel you, Kurt. It’s been a struggle to watch indeed. He later goes in to respond to comments in the thread, defending the much maligned Trubisky by saying that he is not the only thing wrong with offense this season.

It will be interesting to see how the Bears respond to this painful loss and the recent bought of criticism. Matt Nagy insists the team is drowning out all outside noise and focusing on their game, but we’ll see if this loss was the wakeup call the team needed when they face off against the Chargers in Week 8.

After expecting to close, Ditka's Restaurant extends lease to stay open

After being in a “fourth and long” situation to keep Ditka’s Restaurant open, it appears the restaurant has extended its lease in the Gold Coast.

Diana Ditka, wife of former Bears coach Mike Ditka, told the Chicago Sun-Times of a new year extension on their lease. The restaurant has been open since 1997.

Last year the hotel that the restaurant resides in was bought by new owners who planned to do renovations. That complicated a new lease and it appeared Ditka’s Restaurant would close at the end of the year. Instead, they came to a resolution.
