Here at Choose Chicago, we believe one of the best ways to jumpstart a truly epic experience in Chicago is to get ideas from the people who know the city best. Our locals, some of the greatest ambassadors of Chicago you can find, are invaluable resources for discovering the greatest things to see and do in the city.
The Blackhawks and Bulls are steeped in tight playoff races, and Opening Day for the Cubs and White Sox is days away from becoming a reality. Chicago's teams have tasted more than their fair share of sweet success, and in doing so have created indelible moments that live long in the pantheon of sporting glory.
Here are some Chicago sports fans' favorite memories:
