After the exciting (although they ended a bit prematurely) seasons of both the Chicago Cubs and the Chicago White Sox, sports fans who are looking at buying Chicago condos should definitely consider the historic teams and excellent sports entertainment in Chicago. In addition to the necessary visits to Chicago landmarks like Wrigley Field, there are various other teams to support all over the city year round!
The Bears (or should we say da Bears like Mike Ditka), of course, are Chicago’s mainstay. After playing in the Superbowl three years ago, the team is still a powerhouse. Stars Brian Urlacher, Devin Hester and Kyle Orton make games exciting to watch until the minute, and Soldier Field is a must visit for any tourist or new Chicagoan.
The Cubs are another team with a storied history. Though the Cubbies just missed their chance at the World Series this year, watching a game at Wrigley field and celebrating afterwards in Wrigleyville bars are one of the joys of being a Chicago dweller. The Sox, who play at the US Cellular Field (formerly Comiskey Park) in the south of the city, made a run for the Series this year too, making 2008 one of the most exciting years for baseball in Chicago.
The Bulls are Chicago’s renowned basketball team. With former superstars like Michael Jordan, Scottie Pippen and Dennis Rodman, the Bulls have spent many years as an unstoppable NBA force. These days, with Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah and Ben Gordon, the games are as exciting as ever – and the Bulls are poised to become one of the standout teams this season.
For alternative sports lovers, Chicago offers all kinds of opportunities for fandom. The Blackhawks are our hardhitting hockey team, the Chicago Fire is our Major League Soccer team, and you can see the women tear up the basketball court at Chicago Sky games. Major League Lacrosse comes to Chicago in the form of the Chicago Machine, and the Chicago Rush takes football into the arena. And if that isn’t enough, take a look at our Roller Derby team, the Windy City Rollers. Chicago is a mecca for sports fans and definitely a bonus for anyone looking to move here.
