I happen to have grown up in the north Chicago suburbs. Chicago is lucky enough to have three major sports teams:
- The Bulls
- The Cubs
- The White Sox
In the entire time I lived in the Chicago area there wasn't a single sports team that won a series. We were lucky enough to make it to the finals. I moved out west this year to work at Little Oak in Los Angeles and something started happening almost immediately: the Blackhawks, a team that most of us had forgotten about, started winning.
Yesterday the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup. A Chicago team won and I, a Chicago native, am out here with these Lakers fans!
C'est la vie.
