Leave the lakefront? Bears fans have mixed emotions on that
CHICAGO (AP) — The idea that the Bears might leave downtown Chicago for the suburbs has picked up steam in recent weeks. The team announced a bid to purchase Arlington International Racecourse, a horse track 30 miles northwest of Soldier Field. Some fans are onboard with a move, even if it would be gut wrenching. They envision a world-class stadium, maybe one with a dome or retractable roof that would attract Super Bowls and Final Fours. Other fans have a hard time seeing the Bears leave the city the team has called home for a century.
