Soldier Field in March may be just as brutal as a December football game. The Hawks on Friday will test the outdoor ice rink on the field before the Coors Light NHL Stadium Series matchup with Pittsburgh on Saturday. Playing in Chicago has turned some of the Blackhawks into football fans. "Being from Canada, I know we have the CFL," forward Bryan Bickell said. "It's tough to follow. I'm not a big fan of the CFL. Being in Chicago for as long as I have been, I'm a Bears fan definitely.

Robbie Gould is the NFL's fifth most accurate kicker of all time, an avid tweeter and host of the Chicago Bears Network's "The Final Horn. " RedEye chatted with him about Twitter and his newfound enjoyment as a member of the media. I want to talk about Twitter. Start me off - why did you get on? Well, I think it's a great opportunity to get involved with your fans and have a direct connection with them in an immediate fashion. I got Twitter to answer questions that fans may have and to just interact with fans as best as you possibly can. I saw your teammates were...

Sometimes I wish I didn't know anything about football. Because if I didn't, I might have enjoyed Sunday's two-point disaster against Detroit. I might even be smiling now, just like the bartender who served me and my friends during the game. For instance, when Jay Cutler and Brandon Marshall hooked up on the opening drive for three straight completions capped by a 32-yard pass and a 7-0 lead, the chipper bartender said, "We got a goal! Uh, a touchdown!" And then she laughed and said, "I don't watch a lot of sports.

With the Bears trailing Carolina 19-7 in the fourth quarter Oct. 28, Robbie Gould lined up for a "gimme" 33-yard field goal - and missed it. Fortunately for the Bears, he got a shot at redemption. RedEye talked to Gould, long snapper Patrick Mannelly and holder Adam Podlesh to take you Inside The Helmet for the missed kick, the time between and the game-winner. Podlesh: In all honesty, and you can talk to Robbie, both of us thought the kick was going to end up good. We had a 20 mph wind going right to left.

Each week before the Bears game, RedEye's sports crew gets straight to the point. Here's how they see Sunday's matchup.   Chris Sosa, @sayitissosa Bears 30, Oakland 23 Have you seen the Raiders defense? The Bears will feast.   Georgia Garvey, @gcgarvey Oakland 24, Bears 9 Caleb Hanie's no Jay Cutler. I say Robbie Gould scores the only Bears points.   Elliott Serrano, @geektome Oakland 13, Bears 10 Hanie Mania will have to wait a week to get started.

The outlook wasn't brilliant for the Chicago Fifty Three that day; The score stood 19 to 7 with but one quarter more to play And when Robbie Gould unleashed a mighty kick that went awry, The fans at Soldier Field were certain this game was doomed to die   "They've won four straight," said one melancholy chap within the stands And though their run was sure to end, this was not within the plans A loss to Carolina, a team...

  Sunday night's showdown at Soldier Field features two of the NFL's best teams in the Bears and Houston. Both are 7-1, and this week's game could be a Super Bowl preview. But why wait until February - or even until Sunday - to see who has the edge?   ELECTORAL VOTES Bears: 20 Texans: 38 Advantage: Texans.

Preseason football generally is about as riveting as watching paint dry. Yet on Saturday, I found myself glued to the final two minutes of the Bears' preseason contest as if it were the Super Bowl as a fellow Lake Zurich High School alum was making headlines. Meaningless football suddenly became metaphorical. Bears fourth-string quarterback Matt Blanchard grew up across town from me and graduated from the same bucolic suburban high school in 2007 as I had seven years prior.

When I got the opportunity to write this column every week, I never thought I'd be writing about kickers. I still can't believe I am dedicating this column to them. Yet this position is very important in fantasy football. If your kicker has a good week, it gives you a great shot at winning. This year players are making longer field goals, which is especially important in leagues that give bonus points for field goals longer than 50 yards. If you can get one of these kickers, their feet will serve you well the rest of the season.

The fan overreaction that follows the first Bears loss of the season is as predictable as leaves changing color and local politicians getting indicted. After reading my timeline Sunday afternoon, I'm convinced Twitterbots generate at least half the Bears-related tweets out there. It doesn't even matter what year it is. "Fire [name='current.coach.Bears']!" "Put in [name='backupQB.current' NOT IF name='grossman.rex']!" "[print='This is not TRUE BEARS FOOTBALL!!!' IF date=> 01-26-1986]"

I watched the Bears 2013 season opener at a friend's apartment, and while we squirmed as Cincinnati jumped out 21-10, we at least had the comfort of not being a Lions fan. There was one in the room, watching the Lions on a laptop in his own little corner, and his agony comforted us. Bad things were happening everywhere - Peanut Tillman getting a pick-six called back, Andy Dalton and A.J. Green performing their own personal air show - but it was...

Welcome to the new age, Bears fans. The previous regime was all right; it's not as if Lovie Smith's 10-6 record in 2012 was a disaster. But when it's Super Bowl or bust, you need a nuclear-powered offense or defense - or both - to carry you to NFL glory.  Enter new coach Marc Trestman, a reputed offensive mastermind, along with high expectations. And no Brian Urlacher to anchor the defense. One game into Trestman's run in Chicago and the team looks pretty good. Good enough to beat Cincinnati 24-21, anyway, after they forced three turnovers and...

It's easy to forget this now, but in October 2005, Robbie Gould was an unknown solution to a known problem. Veteran kicker Doug Brien had missed three of four kicks and injured his back, and the Bears held a tryout for his replacement. Emerging from the pack was Gould, a 22-year-old, undrafted rookie. Eight years later, Bears fans love Gould for his reliable right leg. His teammates appreciate him for much more. ROBBIE THE JOKESTER "Here's a Robbie Gould story," third-year safety Anthony Walters said.

I was walking through the service level hallway in the bowels of Soldier Field heading to the locker room for postgame interviews when a roar ripped round the stadium. "Oh man!" shouted a stadium employee about the Bears, who trailed Seattle 17-14 with 20 seconds remaining. "I think they scored!" They had not, but Brandon Marshall had hauled in a pass and dashed 56 yards on the first play of the Bears' final, desperate drive, and now Soldier Field was shaking with maniacal glee. "Holy crap!"

In the second quarter Sunday, with the Bears leading Minnesota 16-3, Robbie Gould lined up for an extra point. But instead, holder and punter Adam Podlesh ran the ball into the end zone for a 2-point conversion. Soldier Field erupted in cheers, but many fans were confused. Why would the Bears "waste" such a great play call in a regular-season game when you're up 16-3? As RedEye learned from Podlesh - with some help from Gould - it turns out there's a great explanation.   Take us through the fake extra point.
