As the Chicago sports world still awaits news of when the Chicago Blackhawks will return to the ice, a great deal of focus has been placed on the Chicago Bulls as they begin their pre-season run of games and start working out the kinks in preparation for their upcoming season. With Chicago based games this week that showcased the skills of the highly-talented Chicago Bulls and several games slated for the United Center next week, local fans will have plenty of chances to see the Bulls live as they gear up for the season ahead and get ready to see the Bulls in their real season form and as they plan to see the return of Chicago Bulls star Derrick Rose. Fortunately, for football fans, the Chicago Bears who are currently tied in the top spot of their conference will be playing at home this week in a game that fans hope will help the Bears continue their latest win streak.
While the city awaits the upcoming winter sports season, big news has been getting Chicago soccer fans excited, even as the Chicago Fire are on a current two week break during the season.
