Why I am a Chicago Sports fan....Temporarily

Why I am a Chicago Sports fan....Temporarily

If you have read my side introduction to my blog, I am not really from Chicago. I am not a big Chicago sports fan. I am simply not!

I am born and bred in the great state of Minnesota (minus the wacko May we had this year.) I have only lived here for over 6 years and have my own personal sports fan allegiance. I love my teams!

I love my Vikings! (Two words: Adrian Peterson!) I love my Twins! (Two words: Joe Mauer!) I have developed a love/hate relationship with the Timberwolves ever since KG left for the team for THAT other team! I love my Avalanche hockey! (It is a long story and involves the North Stars leaving Minnesota turning the team into the "fake" Stars.)

Lately, I have to put my differences involving Chicago sports teams aside....temporarily. During the last series that was just settled tonight, I was routing for the Hawks because I really, really despise the Red Wings because my favorite team has the same rivalry as Hawk fans. I really wanted to see the Red Wings fall (and they did. Thank goodness!) But that's just temporarily. I will going back to wearing my blue and red jersey next season.

I also have to rooting for the Cubs during the Crosstown Classic. As a Twins fan, I really want to see the White Sox lose. Once again, this is just temporary. I have already gone back to rooting for my beloved Twins tonight. I will go back to rooting for the Cubs when the second half of series commences.

People have tried over the time that I have lived here to change my mind and pull me into the Chicago Sports scene. You guys can have your White Sox, Bears, Blackhawks, and Cubs. I am sure that they are great team. I just prefer to stay loyal to my teams. It is much better that way.

    Greetings, Chicago Suburbanites! Welcome to Active Suburbia! My name is Denise, but I am known as Firefly, Red, and "Hey there". I will be your tour guide to everything active within the Chicago suburbs. In this blog, I will be your guide to places within the Chicagoland Suburbs that will help lead a more active lifestyle and a lot of fun too. In fact, studies have shown that reading this blog will bring a smile on your face, a spring in your step, and burn those last nasty 5 lbs that you can't get off. (Ok, everything's true except for the last one that hasn't been proved.....YET, but I am determined to make it true.) Here's a short introduction about myself: I am a very active person. You can say that I have endurance, determination, grit, and hard work in my bones. I enjoy running and cycling. I have completed a couple of marathons, half-marathons, 5K's, etc in my running career. I also enjoy trying most things active and willing to explore if I have to. I enjoy checking out the trails near me and doing a lot of running. I also enjoy teaching Pilates and yoga. I am also a suburbanite living in the awesome suburb of Berwyn. I am a suburban girl at heart and love every minute of it. I originally grew up in the frozen tundra of the Twin Cities. I am also a die-hard sports fan and enjoy the competitive nature of it. I love baseball, college and professional football, and even hockey. I am always interested in finding more fun places within the Chicago suburbs. If you know of a gem, shoot me an e-mail at activesuburbia@gmail.com. You can also follow me on Twitter too.
