They'd also be moved to the winner's circle for their chance at kicking a world record 65-yard field goal for a pair of Super Bowl LIII tickets and the works.

Goose Island Beer Co. staged a #FieldGoalChallenge in snowy Chicago on Saturday, and offered fans free beer for a year if they could manage to hit a 43-yarder in front of a crowd.

Chicago brewery Goose Island Beer Co. put on the contest outside its taproom at 1800 W. Fulton St. less than a week after the Bears lost to the Philadelphia Eagles 16-15 in the National Football League wild-card game last Sunday.

There's nothing more exciting than knowing that Mortal Kombat is still going strong after all these years. Mortal Kombat 11 is now dated for April 23 and will be released for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One.

Goose Island officials invited "armchair kickers" who thought they could do better - to give it a shot.

Not a single person out of the 100 that tried made it even close to Parkey's double-doinked kick.

Without a grand prize to award, the brewery is donating $20,000 to the Lurie Children's Hospital, the charity chosen by Parkey.
