This Week’s City…


Chicago is home to recent success stories in the world of sports. The Blackhawks are the most recent winners of the Stanley Cup. The Bears have appeared in two NFC Championship games and a Super Bowl in the last 10 years. The Bulls have won the most NBA Championships since 1990 with six. Even the White Sox took home the World Series title in 2005. However, the culture in Chicago seems to be defined by their lovable losers, the Cubs, title-less since 1908. With a city full of titles and wins, is it possible that the culture is generally defined by what the city doesn’t have?

This week we’ll have a ton of coverage, ranging from Spring Training for the Cubs and White Sox, Derrick Rose’s run at NBA MVP and the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks.
