I live in Colorado Springs, but grew up in Chicago...loving baseball, hockey, and football.
-Grew up a south side Cubs fan...maybe if the other team in town had their games on WGN back while I was growing up a snot-nosed baseball nut in the 80s, it might be a different story, but it's not, and I don't give a damn. I was, and remain, a die-hard Cub fan.
-My Dad covered the Blackhawks for the Tribune in the mid-80s, so having the opportunities I did as a youngster to see games/practices, meet players, etc. hooked me in for life as a Hawks fan...so much so that I was one of those 7,000 in attendance at the UC during the dark years.
-How can you grow up in Chicago and not be a Bears fan? I guess if you HATE football?
-Sure, I can call myself a Bulls fan...not quite to the degree of the aforementioned Chicago favorites, but I cheer for them.
