In 2020, the year of the pandemic, quarter-million coronavirus deaths, hurricanes, wildfires, protests, civil unrest, and financial disaster, it might seem as though nothing positive can occur. One light of hope can be found in Chicago professional sports clubs — Bears, Cubs, Bulls, and Blackhawks — all had an outstanding October, writes Brian Constable of the Daily Herald.
The teams play to empty stadiums, yet seemingly manage to keep up morale.
Constable explains the Chicago Bears began October with a perfect 3-0 record, even though they have “flirted with defeat every game so far this season.” Moreover, the team had come into October with the same ranking or better since their initial season in 1920 when the team was named Decatur Staleys.
Additionally, the White Sox and Cubs postseason play may lead to a World Series game betwixt the two. The Northside and Southside MLB teams have only competed on one World Series matchup — 1906.
In August, the Chicago Blackhawks made it to postseason competition for the first time three years. In October, they hired Billy Donovan as their new head coach. Donovan has led every team to the postseason as a head coach. Fans are hopeful he will do the same for the Blackhawks.
