Favorite Chicago Sports Memory: The Bears 2006 Super-Bowl run. Watching the Bears trump the Saints in the 2006 NFC Championship game makes my heart happy. Also the Mike Brown games vs Cleveland/San Francisco. Cutler tearing up Philly for 4 TD’s as well this season.

Location: Jamestown, KY

Beat: All Chicago Teams, follow the Bears, Bulls and Cubs religiously.

Bio: My father was a Chicago transplant to Southern Kentucky, and I drank the juice early in life.  Grew up assuming excellence was standard with the Bulls in the 90’s. I’ve had my struggles w/ the Cubs and Bears, and until recently the Blackhawks, but I’m convinced they’ll all pull through.  I have a degree in Elementary Education, and I’m currently working as a community liaison/data entry for a local business.  I like to spend my free time on Lake Cumberland, the houseboat capital of the world!

Favorite Chicago Sports Memory: Kerry Wood’s 20K game against Houston, and the Bears/Arizona game…http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cDAq5tyfk9E&NR=1…Thanks Dennis Green!

Favorite Chicago Sports Athlete: Derrick Rose, Marlon Byrd, Julius Peppers

Claim to Fame: Actually convinced my wife to let me watch the Cubs opening day and the Duke Championship win on April 5, 2010…the same day we got married.

Christopher Snow

Location: Southwest Side of the City

Beat: Chicago Bulls

Bio: I haven’t missed a Bulls game in 25 years*. Astrix because a handful of them were taped and watched no more than a day later thanks to either work or school, and a few missed live thanks to being in the military(well, like a few seasons, but I caught up!) I also have been a conscious Bulls fan for longer than that and I hope to go another 25 without hiccups! I haven’t missed a Bears game in almost as long, and I catch about 20 Hawks games a season, between the rest.

I support both baseball clubs. My parents were from the northside and lived in Wrigleyville, but I grew up within a ‘city walking’ distance from Comiskey. My family moved to Green Bay in the heat of the football season. Lucky for me it was only for 2 months, then we moved back to good old chi-town. At that point I didn’t care about northside and southside. My city pride grew and all that matters was the Chicago that stood in front of the name. At least this made sense to me as a kid. Since then I never really chose one baseball team over the other, I’ll figure this out when they meet each other in the World Series.

Favorite Chicago Sports Memory: The riots after the 1991 NBA Finals. Even a humble Bulls fan only cautiously optimistic at that point. The car next to mine was flipped over, there was a street fire when I looked out of my back window. Drunk strangers were hugging each other, throwing some serious high-fives out and knocking down poles. That is when you couldn’t help but realizing, shit just got real.

Favorite Chicago Sports Athlete: Joakim Noah and Mike Brown

Claim to Fame: I went swimming, stoned, off an island in Hawai’i. I fell asleep in the ocean at 1AM. I woke up at 4AM and found myself 10 miles off the coast. I’m here today, nuff said.
