Numerous teammates and professional athletes have backed Cody Parkey after his crucial missed field goal, and now a Chicago brewery is coming to his rescue.

Goose Island is giving “armchair kickers” who brutalized the Bears kicker while sitting on their “throne of potato chips and vape pens” a chance to win free beer for a year if they can hit a 43-yard field goal outside their brewery.

After an outpouring of comments and questions, Goose Island shared its official rules for the competition.

Parkey’s missed attempt with 10 seconds remaining in Sunday’s wild-card game ended Chicago’s postseason run with a 16-15 loss in front of a stunned home crowd.

“I feel terrible,” Parkey said after the game. “There’s really no answer to it. I thought I hit a good ball.”

His first attempt was good with room to spare, but Eagles coach Doug Pederson called a timeout before the snap. Then Eagles lineman Treyvon Hester got his hands on the ball on the second attempt.

“He’s a Chicago Bear and thus a Chicagoan,” Goose Island General Manager Todd Ahsmann said, via the Chicago Tribune. “We support our neighbors and fellow Chicagoans through thick and thin.”

In Philadelphia, however, the infamous double-doink has prompted a number of Eagles fans to Venmo Parkey money for sending their team to the divisional round.
