THE CHICAGO CUBS. Where:
THE CHICAGO WHITE SOX. Where: Guaranteed Rate Field, Bridgeport When: Late March through Late September. 2005's World Series winners, the White Sox have been around since 1901, making their home at Guaranteed Rate Field in the south side neighborhood of Bridgeport. The neighborhood is replete with taverns and tasty budget eats. A trip to see the White Sox play at the "ole ball game" is a magical day in any Amercan's book.
THE CHICAGO BLACKHAWKS. Where: United Center, Near West Side When: Early October through Early April. Move over, Canada ... Chicago's six-time NHL Stanley Cup Champion Blackhawks are a force to be reckoned with. Avoid parking nightmares on game day by taking the special #19 United Center Express bus that commences service ninety minutes before game time.
THE CHICAGO BULLS. Where: United Center, Near West Side When: Mid October to Mid-April With six division titles, having never lost an NBA series, and producing more superstars of the sport than any other team, the Bulls are in a class by themselves. Catch the magic during the regular season at the United Center arena that they share with the Hawks. For shorter lines, skip over to the South Atrium entrance, where you have the added benefit of a photo opportunity with the commemorative statue of Michael Jordan.
THE CHICAGO BEARS. Where: Soldier Field, South Loop When: September through late January Football mania takes Chicago by storm in the fall. Seats at Soldier Field to see "da Bears" go on sale in the summer and typically sell out well in advance, so plan ahead or suffer at the hands of scalpers. Don't miss the party in the parking lot -- the tradition of tailgate cookouts before a Bears game is venerable, bordering on mandatory.
