Think you’re better than Chicago Bears kicker Cody Parkey, who infamously missed what would have been a game-winning, 43-yard field goal against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday? Well, one Windy City brewery wants you to prove it. “A lot of armchair kickers on here are saying that they could hit that field goal, which we find DOUBTFUL. You’re gonna sit there on your throne of potato chips and vape pens and criticize this dude’s athleticism? GET REAL,” Goose Island Brewery tweeted Monday. “So you know what we’re going to do? Build a dang field-goal post in the middle of the street outside of our brewery, and all you pro athletes can come out and prove us wrong.” If you can make the FG, there’s more in it for you than bragging rights. “Hit the 43-yard field goal and you’ll win beer for a year,” the brewery added. “We’re dead serious…Construction begins tomorrow.”
