Not sure if it will help mask the gut-wrenching pain of that Bears loss Sunday night, but show season opens this week around Chicago outdoors.

The first week comes with a variety of options, led by the longest-running show of all, the Chicago Boat, RV & Sail Show at McCormick Place Wednesday through Sunday.
