I am a transplanted Westlaker living now in Chicago. You think prices are high for the BrownsRead More "exhibition" games? Here is the list of expenses and effort for last nights Bears-Browns "scrimmage". Drive to Soldier Field from/to far western burbs.....$14.00 in tolls, $18.00 in gas @ $.379/gal. Time to get to parking, a mile from stadium, 1 hour 40 minutes in HEAVY traffic. Parking fee $30 Walk to stadium in 85' heat.....20 minutes. Arrived with most other fans near the end of first quarter. Walked up what seemed to be a mile of ramps to seats on 25 yd line. Got to seat with 8 minutes left in 2nd quarter. At the half, stood in line for 15 minutes to buy two $7 dogs and two $8 draft beers. Total bill $30 Two tickets in the nose bleed section on 25 yard line, $170 Frustration of whole evening caused me to punch out a drunk and obnoxious Bears fan and I was arrested and fined $350 and spent night in jail. OK, I'm kidding about the last part but I was close. total bill $262 total time involved 5 hours 20 minutes. The new Soldier Field looks like an alien space ship landed in the old stadium. The views are good but amenities are not. No escalators or elevators, too few bathrooms, and long lines at concession stands. And NO close by parking. Everyone must walk under Lake Shore drive and across Michigan ave. to overpriced parking from $30-$50. The NFL think there is no limit to how much fans are willing to pay. I think they are about to find out.

Excellent article, but a slight correct: Kevin Burke played for St Edward and lead the Eagles to anRead More undefeated season and their only state football championship. Great to see him get such recognition.

It sounds like you did not get some compassion needs met and therefore you have no compassion. YouRead More clearly are not educated on the shift in circadian rythyms that teens experience due to the growth they are experiencing......they are not fully grown adults and should not be expected to behave like one. Every stage of life has its developmentally appropriate responses to the "real world" and teens should not be expected to behave like adults. You are the one that needs a reality check!!

Teresa, I provided a sampling of studies that look just at grades in the post below this, but IRead More realized I didn't clarify what they are, sorry - it's the post dated Feb 21. I tried to find studies that you can easily see online (the journals and articles are usually only available through library accounts - university or public).
