lmao

lets see

chic-land:
CUBS-lmao...
SOX-ehh
BLACKHAWKS-huh
BULLS-mj...props
BEARS-one super bowl win

Bay Area:

GIANTS-most winningest franchise in baseball by pure numbers
A'S-world series wins in the 70's,89
RAIDERS-storied franchise..couple superbowls
NINERS-montana, steve young, rice...dynasty team in the 80s/90s
SHARKS-best record right now
WARRIORS-ill give u this one...bulls dominate in history
If you're trying to criticize Chicago sports teams by comparing them to those of another city, then... uuhhh... you probably don't want to use San Francisco's teams as your benchmark. Besides the 49ers of the eighties, you probably should keep your mouth shut.

(And, btw, I wouldn't even call attention to the Raiders considering their current state of ineptitude).

Yea, listing the Raiders as "a storied franchise" is a little odd considered their recent history...you could consider them to be the biggest joke in the NFL at this point.

With all due respect LakeShore, you're never going to get a good response by lecturing people about how money can't buy class and then say: Do you know where MY parents socialize? You couldn't get in the door. I went to the same school as Trump's kid.

I know this has turned into a heated debate, but keep your composure. It's pretty well documented that the Bay Area is among the wealthiest in the country, if not the wealthiest. You're only making yourself look bad by calling out their lack of class and then proclaim you're rich and were born into a boatload of cash. Seriously, who cares? None of us.

Anyway, I'm going to side with some of the earlier opinions that were given on this thread before it turned into a flamewar:

I personally would prefer the city of Chicago over San Francisco (though not by much because San Francisco is gorgeous too), but the areas surrounding San Francisco is definitely superior to the areas surrounding Chicago.

I'm not going to vote, so I'll just say both are great cities, and would happily live in either.
I actually agree with this. Although I perfer SF, Chicago has it beat for city life.

so...

Chicago> SF
Chicagoland<Bay Area

I much prefer Chicago. At least our schools are acceptable, our streets are CLEAN we can afford out homes and Oakland is probably more dangerous than Chicago.
Didn't a kid just get beat to death with a 2x4 in the middle of the street in Chicago a few months ago? Oakland and Chicago are probably just as dangerous.

By every measure. They're near the very top of every list as far as wealth goes. Remember, I said among the weathiest...I didn't necessarily say they were at the top of every category.

@ kcee, yea a kid got beat to death a few months ago...horrible event to hear about. At least since it was videotaped, hopefully all the kids involved will get what they deserve.

LakeShoreSoxGo does not speak for all Chicagoans.

I could care less how much old money is in the area I live in (actually, I'd prefer to live away from the attitude that it sometimes brings), how good or bad Chicago's sports teams are has no bearing on my quality of life, and I like to live in diverse progressive communities.

Please continue...

Oh, and if I had to live outside of either city (Chicago or SF) and in the burbs (or smaller cities for SF's sake) I'd choose the Bay Area hands down.

I love Chicago, and would choose it over San Fran any day, but if we're talking about metros I'd probably have to choose the Bay.
