CHICAGO (Fox 32 News) - Goose Island brewery is challenging Chicagoans who claim they could have kicked a better field goal than Cody Parkey to come out and prove it.
This weekend, starting at noon, there will be field goal posts set up outside their tap-room at Fulton and Wood Street. They say whoever makes the 43-yard field goal wins free beer for a year.
“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 tweeted Monday.
Parkey missed what would have been the game winning 43-yard field goal Sunday against the Eagles. The NFL ruled Monday, though, that the kick was actually blocked.
