Chicago Sports 4 Life

To say that my husband and I are Chicago sports fans is the understatement of the century.  We may or may not have a problem.

  • My husband and I met at a Cubs game.
  • Our cat, Kaner, is named after Patrick Kane of the Blackhawks, and our puppy, Wrigley, is named after the Friendly Confines.
  • We believe in three seasons…baseball, football, hockey.
  • Dinner is complete without a rundown of the sports news from the day.
  • A peek into our closet will reveal several authentic (my husband is a jersey snob) jerseys from the Bears, Blackhawks, and Cubs.
  • Every Christmas, it is guaranteed that we will give the other some sort of Chicago sports related gift.  This year I received a David Ross Cubs jersey and my husband was given several World Series related items.
  • During the football months, every Sunday is dedicated to the Bears, no matter how bad they are that year.
  • Despite the fact that I am not a hockey fan, Blackhawks games overrule all other TV, especially during playoff season.  I may not watch, but I’m in the room for emotional support.
  • Both our birthdays fall near Labor Day weekend, so we forgo exchanging gifts and instead go to a Cubs game.
  • During Cubs post season, we spent more money on playoff tickets and bar tabs than we did on our mortgage.
  • When Kris Bryant threw the final out to Anthony Rizzo, which led to the Cubs World Series Win, my husband and I cried…probably more than on our wedding day.

Chicago sports are our life.  We live and breathe them…well most of them.  We don’t have time for the Bulls.

  1. Too funny!
    Our house is the same during football and hockey seasons.
    I’m not much of a baseball fan, but my husband grew up and remains a Cubs fan (despite growing up and still living on the south side).
    Glad you share this love with your husband!

  2. I’m diehard Cards, all my life. I’ve been a Chiefs fan my whole life too. I’ve been to Royals games and loved them. However, my husband is not a sports guy. He likes sports, but he’s not a fan.
    Good for you that you can both enjoy these things.
