This is White Sox territory, son.

Oh yeah? Well I'm from Chicago, and anyone who is a baseball fan can fuck right off. I hate getting on the Red Line during baseball games. You're fucking with my commute!

Also, this is America. Football is our sport. So instead, Bears fans can fuck right off, because I'm a Packer fan.

This is a weird town.

Bears fans are pretty bad, yeah.

Rabid, even.

Like a bear.

@Vinchenzo: lol, I remember you. You were on some hardcore anti-alcohol tirade, belittling anyone who liked to drink, acting all holier-than-thou, saying anyone who drinks is an idiot etc, and one day I guess you 'discovered' alcohol, because you changed your profile wallpaper to a picture of you with a 40oz.

At least, that's what happened in my head.

And with that fact, the OP has lost any trace of credibility (if he even had any in the first place).

What an asshat.

Getting on the Red line or any line at any time is a terrible ordeal, Chicago trains are gross. Also Metra trains are always late and prone to failure.

As someone who is not from Chicago I think Patrick should take it a step further by constantly making references to Common songs.

We can more than agree on that.

I'm fine with people drinking, just not people drinking to get drunk. Which brings me back to Patrick and how he acted like he almost got into a fight at a bar, when he did not even come close to getting into a fight at a bar.

Also I have no credibility which you're correct in. Pretty much nobody on the internet has credibility. Welcome to the internet.

I'm from Chicago and I love Portillo's.  Try to find someone from this area who doesn't.  Honestly.  Sure Al's Beef on Clark  might be a little better and little sweeter (figuratively) because it's not a chain... but I fucking love Portillo's and Lou Malnati's pizza.  I'm not afraid to admit it.
 
EDIT: If this thread made me realize anything its that there are a lot of cool Midwest duders and we should have a Chicago-based-duder-meet-up.  Preferably with the bomb crew out here too.  OP's not invited.

Yeah Portillo's is good. I went to Al's Beef a few months ago and didn't find the appeal. Not a fan of having to stand up while eating, either.

Lou Malnati's also good.

I myself am from Chicago, and I just want to tell you to stop trying to represent Chicago. Those deep-dish, Chicago hot dog, Cubs and Bears loving purists are the worst. And no I'm not saying deep-dish or Chicago hot dogs are bad, I love them as well, but don't have dumb arguments defending deep-dish just because you're from Chicago.

He is a guy who is probably home sick for home after the passing of his father. My wife is from New Zealand and loves everything New Zealand now that she lives in Chicago instead of Christchurch.

If anything make fun of him for being a north side lameo, that isn't the real Chicago. :P

Yeah...but I'm gunna stay up here on the north side...because you know...the whole keeping your blood in your body thing.

Years ago, while in college, I received a package from my mother. Within the package there was a torn piece of paper. Scribbled upon that piece of paper there was signed an illegible autograph. I promptly call my mother to enquire. She tell me she had a layover in North Carolina during her recent business trip. While at the airport she had gotten the autograph from a black guy who looked like a celebrity, possibly a rapper. She had no idea who he was, just knew that I listened to "rap" and thought I might like to have it. I racked my brain for the better part of a month. Eventually, after lowering my expectations I figured it out!

I also am from Chicago, and you're acting like a spoil-sport. Stop it.

Dawg, it's fun to love Chicago. And hot dogs are way better Chicago-style then with ketchup. Of course, ketchup is just the worst on everything. (So overpowering with so little reward, and on the handful of occasions it's valuable, barbecue sauce is always better!)

Also, he's not a purist on deep dish pizza, he just knows that Domino's in San Fran isn't gonna deliver you an actual deep dish pizza, it's gonna deliver you something with a stuffed crust and not four inches of tomatoes and nonsense. They don't even have an Uno's out there anymore (if my Googling checks out) to get proper deep dish. And I mean "proper" in the sense that "it's actually deep dish," not in the sense that "the only proper way to eat pizza is deep dish."

As for loving the Bears/Cubs, he likes sports. Is that really so wrong?

Forget Chi-Town this Ketchup slandering shall not stand sir. Ketchup is delicious.

The only things that go on a hot dog are, sauerkraut, mustard, and diced onions. Never ketchup.

I like to hear tales about Chicago because after having visited there once it's interesting to hear any redeeming facts about it. Everyone knows NYC is the best, apart from the terrible weather and terrible everything else.

Get rid of the kraut and put on chili sauce and you might have something there...

@Hitchenson: Deservedly.  It's kind of awesome how a few thousand miles and cultures can become so wildly different.  And also entertaining how staunch people can get about the foods they like.  I'm insulted by people putting ketchup on a hot dog and you get defensive about.... that thing.

This thread is basically a snarky Yelp review of Patrick.

I LOVE Chicago and growing up it was ALWAYS a treat to visit there with my parents. So when I heard that Giant Bomb was hiring none other than Chicago's own PATRICK KLEPEK to be a newsman for their site to supplement the Alex Navarro they already had, I was BESIDE myself with delight...
