However, two Bears fans will never forget the date. NBC Chicago reports Jay Gottred and Kalli Jacobson used their pregame tailgate as the spot for their wedding. Standing underneath a navy and orange arch, they both wore Bears jerseys. Jacobson wore the traditional veil as they exchanged vows before nearly 100 people.
The couple's first date was at a Bears game, so they couldn't think of a more romantic spot to get married than on a pickup truck in a parking lot outside Soldier Field. The location was her idea. Considering weddings in Cook County average $26,000, a tailgate wedding wasn't the worst idea. Not only did they save some cash, but they got to wear more comfortable clothing than a wedding dress and tuxedo.
Though the game ended badly, the two can now remember the date as something more than a really, really bad game for the Bears. Here's hoping they can make it work better than the Bears' offense.
