It’s official-Lovie Smith’s contract has been extended through the end of the 2013 season. I’ll say it again, it is a good thing that it wasn’t a five-year guarantee. Because we’ve been there, with less than stellar results.
It’s also official that my fairly mediocre seats at Soldier Field have gone up in price for the third straight year by a double-digit figure. This year my price is increasing 13%. I know I’m fortunate to be a Bears season ticket holder and if I ever don’t want to put up with the McCaskey’s greed, I can give it up.
But since practically nobody is improving their economic circumstances in this economy, I do find it somewhat unconscionable that the McCaskey’s continue to kick their fans while they’re down.
