Condiments: great for hot dogs, bad for interior decorating.

According to a published report, this guideline wasn’t followed over the weekend at Soldier Field.

A pair of stadium suites were vandalized after the Bears Family Fest concluded on Saturday night, the Chicago Tribune reported Wednesday, citing the company that operates Soldier Field.

According to the newspaper, condiments were spread about in one suite. There was also an attempt to set a flame-resistant carpet ablaze, according to the Tribune.

According to the report, a trespasser was found at Soldier Field early Sunday morning, and it is thought he entered the suites, per Soldier Field’s management company.

The suites will be back up and running for the Bears’ preseason opener vs. Philadelphia on Friday, the Tribune said.

Condiments: great for hot dogs. Except ketchup. Not ketchup.

    Wilkening, nice end to the article, well played.

    Those Suites are expensive and I’m sure that won’t happen again if someone got away with it. How could someone not be tied to those suites for incidentals or vandalism, it’s like a hotel room…

    No Ketchup on Chicago Hot Dogs.

    Classy. Whatever happened to respecting other’s people’s property?

  6. Wineshard says: Aug 6, 2014 10:59 PM

    At least there was no urination involved.

    I’d go with the “I was just making SURE the carpets were flame resistant” defense

    stay classy Chicago

    Just how stupid can people be. Its not like they will not know who was in the suite.

  10. justintuckrule says: Aug 6, 2014 11:11 PM

    Totally agree. Those who put ketchup on hotdogs should not be allowed to call themselves Americans.

    Keep it classy Chicago. Smh…

    Some way somehow someone is going to blame Jay Cutler. Why? Because he has a sour look on his face.

    Stay classy Chicago

    C’mon Chicago…you’re better than that.

  15. hockeyflow33 says: Aug 7, 2014 12:04 AM

    This is better than the crimes we usually see in Chicago

  16. maddog107us says: Aug 7, 2014 12:05 AM

    I’m gonna take a guess n say there might of been a few people that didn’t do there jobs that night, n “family fest”. Just doesn’t sound like the right term for that event.

  17. benoconnell22 says: Aug 7, 2014 12:19 AM

    Martellus Bennett?

  18. rextraordinaire says: Aug 7, 2014 12:31 AM

    Sounds like somebody went to the family fest and put ketchup on their hot dog.

    Chicagoans take this offense very seriously.

  19. veence69 says: Aug 7, 2014 12:41 AM

    Way to represent.

  20. alonestartexan says: Aug 7, 2014 1:12 AM

    Da Bears!

  21. skinsfan91 says: Aug 7, 2014 1:40 AM

    So . . . the players’ families did this?

  22. njpackerfan says: Aug 7, 2014 2:37 AM

    Stay classy Chicago, oh, sorry it’s Chicago. Bears fans, uggggh.

  23. slugbaitspace says: Aug 7, 2014 3:04 AM

    My wife likes ketchup on her hot dogs. Almost didn’t marry her because of it. Quite revolting, really…

    My kid doesn’t like ANY condiments, on anything. Jeez, I have two problems to deal with…

    Thank goodness for beer.

    Urlacher finally got revenge for being let go.

  25. oldguardof60s says: Aug 7, 2014 5:46 AM

    I’m guessing not enough alcohol served to properly sedate the fans.

  26. metalhead65 says: Aug 7, 2014 7:13 AM

    what is wrong with putting ketchup on your hot dog? never mind I don’t want to know because I am going to keep doing it no matter what!

  27. dawkphan says: Aug 7, 2014 7:23 AM

    And they complain about Eagles Fans ? go figure

  28. nokoolaidcowboy says: Aug 7, 2014 7:43 AM

    Just out of curiosity I hope to see an update tag to this for closure.
    If the team’s families are suspect, I’d start with the teenagers. An irresponsible prank…

    Chicago: Giving the Midwest a bad name since 1837.

  30. realitycheckbaby says: Aug 7, 2014 9:14 AM

    Considering his “shape”, my guess is it was Cutler who was upset about them running out of food.

  31. purpleguy says: Aug 7, 2014 9:55 AM

    What kind of families are festing over there anyhow?

  32. flickaboogie says: Aug 7, 2014 12:11 PM

    Those Dang Packer fans!

  33. beardown502 says: Aug 7, 2014 1:33 PM

    I would guess this was a group of 8th graders or something. I’m not sure a true fan would pull this kind of grade school stunt.

    I will tell you what’s wrong with it. It ruins the sausage.

    Go ahead and dip your fries in it, but a dog/brat/etc deserves better, much better.

    Maybe when you grow up you’ll get it. Kindergarteners eat ketchup on their dogs but no self-respecting adult ever would.

    Vandalism at Soldier Field? How could they tell?
