If you’re ever in Chicago you can walk into any number of the souvenir shops along Michigan Avenue and find a popular Chicago shirt. It pretty much sums up the city to a tee (pun intended). It says “Chicago: A Drinking City with a Sports Problem.” And every word of it is true.
We love our sports teams. We drink when they lose, we drink when they win. And when one of our hometown teams makes it to the championship, the whole city celebrates.
And how do we celebrate? We dress up our many statues around the city.
Our standby is the lions outside the Art Institute of Chicago. They get dressed up for everyone.
We also dress up the famous Picasso statue in Daley Plaza.
And then depending on which team is on a championship run, we get creative.
Please tell me, is this normal in any other city?
