Chalk up another one for Chicago! When I was born in 1983, Chicago was in the midst of a 20-year championship drought that lasted 2 more years. Now, in my lifetime, 4 out of 5 of Chicago's teams have brought home a championship, and since the Bulls won 6, that's 9 total! Congrats to everyone in my home town. I haven't been the best Blackhawk fan over the past 10 years or so, but I'm damn proud of them and my city tonight. I'm especially happy for my dad, who is a lifelong fan and has waited 49 years to see them hoist the Stanley Cup again (although the White Sox winning in 2005 was way more exciting for both of us).

So....that 5th team that hasn't won one? You know who you are....102 years, and now a 77 year gap between the Cubs last championship and any other team in Chicago....
