There is going to come a time when Chicago Bears home games will not be played in the elements.
Which makes wins like the one the Bears had in Week 1 against the 49ers that much more special.
And you know what really kicks it up a notch? That the players absolutely love it. Take Roquan Smith for example:
That 29-second clip was giving up all sorts of classic NFL Films vibes. The only thing missing was a Sam Spence composed soundtrack and narration from Pat Summerall, John Facenda, or Harry Kalas. But we did get a handful of Roquan soundbites that’ll bring a big smile to your face.
“Bro, I feel like a little kid. You know playing in the yard when it rains?”
“I felt like I was in a swimming pool right there when you’re a kid and the water go in your nose.”
“This is my type of party.”
“I love this s—!”
How can you not love this? Especially when you win.

That really took me back to a simpler time. And with a 40 percent chance of rain in the forecast for Sunday Night Football in Green Bay, perhaps there is an encore performance on the horizon.
