And people say we have no class? People say we take football too seriously?

Why do I get the sense that we will be targets in other cities in the near future (if we're not already)?

I don't doubt this story at all, and I thought going to a game in Baltimore was bad.

That is truly classless, but it happens alot more than you think. I will no longer accept a drink from anyone unless I see the bartender pour it him/herself or it is an unopened bottle of beer. After spending time overseas (had a pilot buddy drugged once in Hungary) and having my sister drugged once while I was home on vacation, I take no chances whatsoever.

Hopefully the guy makes a full recovery and the idiots who did this to him get hit with the book!

It's just a freakin' game and yet some people take it to the matter of ruining a person's life.

Stay Classy Chicago!

That's not right. Sure there's bantering and gloating and what have not, but a peace offering under the cloak of deception is downright horrible. I hope they catch the guy who did that and bring him over to Pittsburgh....

If he does indeed go blind, the Bears fan that did this should lose his eyes, ripped out alive.

There is a saying an eye or an eye, in this case it would be justice.

hopefully he recovers, i understand football being a life, it's also an obsession of mine, but to poison someone over it? and ONE game especially (you don't poison someone over sports regardless anyway but i'm pointing out how pointless it is). just goes to show not to accept drinks from an opponent then, but anyway, i wish him luck in the recovery.

There are way too many people that fail to understand the difference between a game and real life.

My wife asked if the Steelers loss tainted our trip. If I was upset. I told her, yeah, for about 5 minutes after.

Then, it was over. The memories and spending time there with her was so much more important.

People really need to get a life.

Another shining example of people taking a game way, way, WAY too far.

I hope he makes a full recovery and that those Bears fans are found and brought to justice.
