Players at the first ever live Pokémon Go event do not seem happy this morning, judging from reports of long lines and connectivity issues trickling in from Chicago.
The Chicago White Sox announced today that they have traded 28-year-old ace pitcher José Quintana to the fucking Chicago Cubs, who are basically worse than the St. Louis Cardinals at this point.
The videos depicting security officers forcibly dragging an elderly United Airlines passenger in Chicago have drawn outrage that is both widespread and entirely justified. Most of the resulting news coverage has focused, correctly, on United’s tone-deaf response and the larger question of how much power airlines wield…
Late one Friday afternoon last September, a well-dressed man in an Audi wheeled into the alley off Damen in Ukranian Village on Chicago’s West Side and up to his garage. As I watched standing in the alleyway, he seemed a mixture of bemused and impatient—he’d have to wait to park.
Howard Brookins can’t stand squirrels.
You did it. You won the game. Congrats. Now it’s over, and the time has come to move on.
One of the less-mentioned aspects of the Chicago Cubs making the World Series is the fact that they haven’t done so in 71 years, and haven’t won a World Series in 108 years. Unless you’re a hardcore Cubs fan, you probably haven’t heard about these statistical anomalies.
“CHICAGO!? You can’t talk about Chicago like that! You can talk about Northwestern if you want.”
Two men have been arrested and charged with the murder of Nykea Aldridge, a cousin of Dwyane Wade who was shot to death in Chicago on Friday.
A cousin of Dwyane Wade was shot and killed Friday afternoon in Chicago while pushing her baby in a stroller.
The Cubs are good at baseball. Real damn good. They lost a narrow one to the Pirates yesterday but they’re still 27-9. The team has an off day today, so naturally, they went and did some karaoke last night. ChiCitySports.com was on the scene as Dexter Fowler, John Lackey, Anthony Rizzo, Jon Lester, Travis Wood, and a…
Chicago ABC station WLS issued an on-air apology last night after using a McDonald’s restaurant over-the-shoulder graphic to illustrate a story on Laquan McDonald, the 17-year-old killed by police in 2014:
For weeks now, I have been haunted by FM morning radio.
Jason Heyward, a strong good baseball man who left the aging team he was with for less than a year for a new team in a better city with other strong baseball men, is not popular around St. Louis. Earlier this month, a bunch of angry mouthbreathers said mean shit about him online (which happens all the time always),…
If you squint hard enough at this nasty number from last week, in which the Chicago Tribune’s Kristen McQueary wrote glowingly of the great civic good Hurricane Katrina visited upon the city of New Orleans a decade ago and of her fervent desire for Chicago to meet a similar fate, you can almost interpret the outline…
Last week, Chance the Rapper took some Chicago kids on a surprise field trip. Today, he went on Windy City Live, a Chicago morning show, and he was an absolute delight.
Johnny Oduya was glistening at the club after Game 6. The Blackhawks defenseman went shirtless at The Mid, and everyone around him basked in the glow. Oduya was as polished as the trophy his team had just won.
You haven’t lived if you haven’t engaged in the highly dangerous yet thrilling pastime of fighting with fireworks. We mostly used bottle rockets where I come from, but here are some friends (or gang rivals, depending on who you’re asking) on Western Ave. in Chicago using roman candles as the weapon of choice.
Since the NFL draft’s not in New York City this year, Jets fans will have to travel to do their traditional booing of the first-round pick. (Is it tradition, or has every first-round pick just been that terrible?) Local news station WGN-TV pretended to be Jets fans, and heckled everyone in Chicago, including but not…
