I know its probably either the Cubs or Bears but which one is it?

I have people tell me its a baseball town and some people tell me its a football town. Which is which?

PS: Cubs are my NL team. I'm a diehard Yankee fan but if I had to chose an NL team it would probably be those cubbies.

Bears. Most Cubs fans are Bears fans. Most Sox fans are Bears fans. Most Sox fans are not Cubs fans.

So from what I can gather the Bears are the one team that brings your city together?

Damn I wish we had something like that. We can keep the Yankees and Mets but the Jets, Islanders, Devils and Nets were all eliminated!

My vote still goes to the Cubs (and I say this as a White Sox fan!). The Bears are of course very popular but the Cubs are a cult. Compare the energy surrounding the Cubs' run to the '03 NLCS versus the energy surrounding the Bears' run to the '07 Super Bowl. No comparison at all. Not even close.

Perhaps it's because the baseball season is longer, maybe it's Wrigley Field, or maybe it's that cute "curse" stuff. I don't know. Regardless, I still think the Cubs are the most popular team in Chicago, by a pretty wide margin.

Blackhawks are still that low? Even after their resurgance this year?

How about the Fire? Is football (REAL football) popular in Chicago? Like are their bars with transplanted Europeans who watch football?
