Abt Shows Off Their Football Team Devotion

Friday, January 21st, 2011

Here in the Chicagoland area, the Bears vs. Packers football game this weekend is our mini Super bowl.  As a special Friday event, we all were able to show off our loyalty to our favorite team.  It’s interesting to see a fellow co-worker show up in the opposing team’s colors.  Friendly wagers have been made and subtle jabs have been thrown around back and forth about who’s the best team.  It’ll be an exciting weekend!

Da Bears!

Kids Day 2009Kids having fun at last year’s Kids Day Chicago Bears theme.

On Sunday, September 19th, da Bears will be playing the Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium at 12 noon.  That’s the same day that we are hosting another Kids Day from 11:30am to 3pm with a Bears theme.  Kids (young and old at heart) can participate in making helmets, pennants, and fingers.  Also available are football bracelets, water bottles and squishy footballs to take home.  For those that want to burn off some energy, we will have games, football ring toss, football toss and bags.  And it wouldn’t be a complete football theme without food, so Sweet Baby Rays will be on hand for a tailgating party with free Pulled Pork sandwiches and chips.  So if you’re not cheering on da Bears in the comfort of your own home, stop by Abt for Kids Day and catch the game on one of our large screen TVs, while sitting in a massage chair.

Are You Ready For Some Football…. On HD???

Friday, September 25th, 2009

The leaves are falling and the temperatures will soon plummet too. What does that mean for Chicagoans? It’s time for Football. Whether you are a Bears fan or just a football lover, it’s always important to spend Thursday nights, Sundays, and Monday nights watching all of your favorite games.

Sometimes, a trip to the in-laws is unavoidable. What could be worse than having a family weekend when the Bears and Packers are playing at noon on Sunday? I’ll tell you—going to your in-laws house when they don’t have a football-worthy HDTV. I’m not the only one that feels this way. Samsung actually did a little research on the topic. They commissioned a survey to find out how enticing it would be to have an HDTV at the in-laws.

Samsung’s survey found that Americans, football fans or not, agreed the best TV to watch football on is hi-def. Football fans agreed if they didn’t have the option to watch the big game from the comfort of home on their own HDTV, the best option would be to go to the in-laws if there were a hi-def TV in place. According to the survey, more than 4 out of 10 football fans believe this to be true. Men were more likely than women, however, to make the trek to the in-laws to watch football in hi-def. Samsung also noted, football fans found the quality of TV was more important than the food they ate while watching the game.

Go Bears!
