You hear it on the radio. You read it in the newspapers. You hear fans and other Chicagoans say it.
But, let me be the one to tell you that they're all wrong.
You have two baseball teams in Chicago—the Cubs and the White Sox. But, there is only one football team.
So, theoretically, everyone is a Bears fan.
While that might be true, the difference is in the game.
Nobody would argue that if you're talking baseball only, it's a Cubs town. For a while, some media tried to say that Chicago was a Sox town shortly after they won the World Series.
Of course, that was proven wrong, because the Sox only draw good attendance to their games when they are winning. This brings me to the basis of my argument.
The Cubs have generally been miserable since, well, forever.
