Sure have, even though it was 6 years ago.

I like Cleveland by a very slight amount over Chicago ONLY because most of my family lives in the area. Cleveland does have alot to do though as does St Louis, Detroit and Minneapolis and of course Chicago. I would say also that I would choose ANY of the above choices over anything west of the Rocky mtns.

No need for the hate. I've been to Chi town plenty of times and have family that have lived there in the past. Yes, I know enough from family members who can vouch for what I said, maybe it has changed a little the last 6 years.
It is racist, Where is Reverend Wright from (ha, ha)!

Why? I've seen huge support for Chicago in other threads and it is the biggest city/metro.

While I like the guy, he's one of those southwestern desert rats who doesnt like anything east of the west Texas border, which is strangely typical of that region's inhabitants.

Minneapolis is my favorite. Big enough, yet small enough.

I love St. Louis myself.

There's really no point in having Chicago on the poll. It's so large it wins the poll every time.

Besides, Chicago has fans that go on to ball fields and beat up 1st base coaches

Oh my god.... does everyone remember the father and son that attacked the umpire at the Sox game like, 10 years ago????

Take Chicago off the poll... I'd say Minneapolis, St. Louis, and Milwaukee are all great cities as well
