Chicagoans line up, fail to make 43-yard field goal

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.

Kicker Cody Parkey is staying off social media after his missed field goal at the end of the Chicago Bears' 16-15 wild-card loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

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.

We are fighting to the bitter end because General Motors is going to have to change their decision. Dias said it isn't too late for GM to change its mind, but time was running out.

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.
