Reading what Joakim Noah says about Luol Deng, you want to wrap your arm around the Bulls center and tell him it's gonna be OK. On Wednesday, the Bulls will face Deng for the first time since he was traded to Cleveland earlier this month. "I love Luol," Noah said. "He's my brother. But when that ball goes up, he's not going to be my brother. " OK, so Noah won't go easy on his former teammate on the court. But his friendship with Deng has earned a spot among the top Chicago sports bromances.

There's no arguing that the Blackhawks are the shining beacon of Chicago sports right now. Really, it's not even close. They have two Stanley Cups in four seasons and everything a franchise needs to be successful: Players: Duh. Toews. Kane. Sharp. Crawford. Hossa. Keith. The list goes on. No first names necessary. Management/coach: A smart trade here, a re-signing there - it's all come up aces. And Coach Q and his mustache take a backseat to no one. Intangibles: All those overtimes in the 2013 playoffs, all those wins.

As always, don't be shy about voting! STUDS Mike Magee, Fire The Chicago native almost singlehandedly cured the Fire's scoring woes, tallying 15 for Chicago and 21 for the season after starting the year in L.A. Oh yeah, he was named 2013 MLS most valuable player. Alshon Jeffery, Bears He's becoming one of the best receivers in the NFL before our eyes.

Sup, Chitown? It's ya boy Scotty Brolohan. I know it's been mad long since you heard from me, but this has been my toughest senior year yet. George Orwell? More like George Borewell. But my best bro at YOLOyola, J-Chap, was like, "Bro, it's the holidays" and I was like, "What?" because I was listening to Deadmau5 in my Beats like mad crazy loud. So I took off my Beats and he was like, "Bro, we don't have class tomorrow, T-Giving bro. " And I was like, "Bro, what about Thirsty Thursday?"

Due to interstate moves, familial allegiances or just plain preference, not every Chicagoan is a Bears fan. Full disclosure: While I like to see the Bears do well, I'm a bleed-blue N.Y. Giants fan. (And yes, I appreciate your condolences on our 0-3 start.) I know firsthand that fall Sundays can make some fans feel a bit homesick; games aren't broadcast, none of your friends care about your team and you just wish there was someone to high-five after a TD. Fortunately, a few Chicago bars, mostly clustered around sports bar-heavy Lakeview...
