Professional Sports Championships in Chicago

 XFINITY from Comcast has generously agreed to support the best NFL community around -- us! As part of that effort, between now and the end of the 2010 NFL season XFINITY will be sponsoring a variety of special editorial and interactive features on our site.

Being in one of the largest sports markets in the world has its perks, like bragging rights when it comes to stockpiling championships.  You don't have to look very far in any direction in Chicago to know what I'm talking about. 

Let's take a quick look at championships won by professional sports teams in Chicago:

Chicago Bears: 1921, 1932, 1933, 1940, 1941, 1943, 1946, 1963, 1985

Chicago Bulls: 1991, 1992, 1993, 1996, 1997, 1998

Chicago Blackhawks: 1934, 1938, 1961, 2010

Chicago White Sox: 1906, 1917, 2005

Chicago Cubs: 1907, 1908

Since 1960, only New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and Pittsburgh have hoisted more championship trophies than Chicago.  Not bad company to be in.

The Blackhawks recently ended a 48 year draught, and the White Sox had gone 87 years without a crown.  It hasn't been too long for the Bulls, but they seem to be posturing for a championship run any time now.  But there is still a significant period of time since the Bears or the Cubbies have risen to the top... when will either of their next championships be?

What do you think about the pro sports teams in Chicago, and what do you expect in the near future for them?
