Things are surely looking up for Chicago sports now that the NFL Draft wraps up later on today. The Chicago Bears had themselves a solid draft, picking up wide receiver Kevin White from West Virginia, who gives them that No. 2 receiver they needed after trading away Brandon Marshall to the New York Jets.

While the Bears prepare for the upcoming season with their new-look coaching staff and defense, the Chicago Bulls find themselves battling it out with LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers this Monday..

Derrick Rose and the Bulls trampled the Milwaukee Bucks by 50 plus points in the series winner the other day making it the second Chicago team in the past month to reach the second round of the playoffs in both the NBA and NHL.

Players from every major team in Chicago has shown some serious support for one another, especially when it matters the most. Offensive guard and my good friend Kyle Long has attended playoff games and even had the opportunity of ‘Shootin’ the Puck’ last April during an intermission with the St. Louis Blues in town.

He missed his first shot but was able to find the back of the net on his second attempt.

Now last night’s game between the Hawks and the Wild had both Anthony Rizzo and Kris Bryant in attendance as a photo of both Cubs’ was shared on Rizzo’s official Twitter account with the hashtag ‘wearegood’.

Rizzo was also spotted on the video board in the United Center during the game as the Blackhawks took game one of the series by the score of 4-3. Chicago’s NHL team is aiming to win their third Stanley Cup since 2010, proving to be one of the top teams in their respected league, even when dealing with serious injuries.

As Cubs’ fans find their beloved team sitting in the top half of the N.L. Central, the Chicago White Sox haven’t had much success over the first part of the year as they sit in fourth place in the A.L. Central.

Chicago’s South Side team enters Saturday with an 8-12 record and a three-game losing streak after falling to the Baltimore Orioles once and the Minnesota Twins twice in back-to-back games. The Sox are in the middle of a four-game road set before hosting the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday evening.

Fasten your seatbelts, Chicago fans, it’s definitely going to be an exciting ride for years to come.
