LOOK: It's so cold in Chicago that a decal flies off the helmet of a Bears player
Meanwhile, Bears QB Matt Barkley is wearing a wet suit
It wasn't quite as cold in Chicago as expected for Sunday's matchup against the Packers.
But the conditions were still frigid (12 degrees, wind chills between minus-10 and minus-25), and not meant for outdoor activities. But the game must go on, as they say, even when it includes the hapless Bears. But you know what wasn't sticking around? That iconic "C" decal on the side of the Bears' helmet -- it had enough and called it a day.
This isn't a euphemism for the season.
In the future, perhaps the logo can take a page out of the playbook of Bears quarterback Matt Barkley and wear a wet suit to combat the conditions.
Bears QB Matt Barkley told me he's wearing wetsuit under jersey today to keep warm -- tip he picked up from Cassell who learned it from TB12— Michele Steele (@ESPNMichele) December 18, 2016
As it turned out, the Bears made a fine comeback but lost on the last play of the game as Green Bay came away with a 30-27 victory.
