Great Moments in Chicago Sports History

There was a great piece by Ed Sherman in today's Chicago Tribune on the 10 greatest moments in Chicago sports history. Here they are:

Sherman's top 10 Chicago sports moments

1. The 1985 Bears win the Super Bowl.
2. The White Sox win the 2005 World Series.
3. Michael Jordan's shot gives the Bulls the 1998 NBA title.
4. The Bears reach the 2007 Super Bowl.
5. The Cubs collapse in the 2003 playoffs.
6. The Bulls win their first title in 1991.
7. The Cubs lose Game 5 of the 1984 playoffs.
8. The Bulls cap their 72-win season with the '96 title.
9. The White Sox win the AL West in 1983.
10. The Blackhawks lose Game 7 to Montreal at Chicago Stadium in 1971.

Believe me folks -- I am not making this up. According to Sherman, a professional sports reporter, two of the greatest moments in Chicago sports history are the Cubs losing!!

I totally agree. If only the Cubs could make to the World Series and lose. Not just lose, but get swept -- totally blown out -- give up lots of runs and get shut out four straight games. That would get my vote for the best sports moments in history!
