Maybe the ad blocker is interfering.

And it could be the ads. Mine don't load all that slow, my ISP delivers anywhere from 30 to 70 mps and I use Chrome and FF. Don't deal with those ads though. Have a good amount of RAM and 4 quadcore processors too...

He hired a former college kicker or someone like that to coach him. Dude nailed the filed goal. The minute it came off his foot you could tell it was going to be good. He was celebrating before it went through the uprights. It was really cool because a lot of the players mugged him in congratulations.
Maybe, but Goose Island should be able afford it. They're pretty popular here and the crowd this should draw will buy a lot of beer.

IIRC, road signs are designed to be frangible, i.e. break easily, to minimize damage to the occupants of the car hitting the sign. Not sure how that translates to signs suspended well above traffic.

Yeah, I don't think that's applicable. There are guardrails as a rule to protect cars and trusses

I've seen plenty of highway signs on the sides of roads that are not behind a guardrail.

signs on the roadside, yes... those need to be break-away. But supports for the trusses that cross the entire highway, we are required to place guardrail around them.

Well, judging by the film crew, I'm sure something was supposed to happen, but I don't think that was quite it.
