11. Home Alone
Remember the first Home Alone? The one with oompah bands, shaving, and “get your ugly, yellow, no-good keister off my property”? Well, it took place in Chicago. Remember the sequel, which just copied over the original like a cookie cutter? Well, it took place in New York. Wet Bandits over Sticky Bandits in a landslide.
12. We didn't destroy our iconic baseball stadium
Bricks and bleachers make up the friendly confines of Wrigley Field, a temple of baseball. Yankee Stadium was built to cater to Gordon Gecko clones. Also, a crazy idea: Chicago teams actually play in Chicago, not on top of Jimmy Hoffa’s corpse in the swamp.
