From the Original Six Blackhawks to six Bulls championships to the 1985 Bears, sports are deeply rooted in Chicago's culture. The newest addition to the city's sports scene is the Chicago Sports Museum. The venue, on the seventh floor of Water Tower Place, and opened earlier this month in conjunction with Harry Caray's 7th Inning Stretch restaurant. I visited the 8,000-square-foot museum recently to test its interactive exhibits and rated them according to their level of cool (detailed below)

Twerking, life-sized stuffed bears, crotch grabs and that tongue. Miley Cyrus, in all her glory, is coming back to Chicago. After postponing or cancelling seven "Bangerz" shows, Cyrus announced on Monday her rescheduled tour dates and two additional shows in Pittsburgh and Chicago, according to a press release. She'll perform Aug. 14 at the United Center. Tickets for her return visit go on sale at 10 a.m. on May 9.

For weeks rumors have circulated that married icons Beyonce and Jay-Z would headline a tour this summer, and the rumors have now been confirmed: You can see the mega-stars Thursday, July 24 at Soldier Field as part of the “On the Run” tour. The title is a play on the 2013 Jay-Z track “Part II: On the Run” that featured - wait for it - Beyonce. A promotional item for the tour features a photo of the couple in ski masks. Good thing there's no mistaking Mrs. Carter's eyes.

For three years, Brittney Lane has been in a relationship that works. The Logan Square resident said she has never felt disappointed or frustrated, since her significant other is drama-free and dependable. (For the record, her boyfriend disapproves of this union.) No matter, because Lane is headed for a breakup. Next month, she has to part with her beloved Chicago Card Plus. "I've had no problems at all with my Chicago Card," said Lane, 25. "I am very attached to it I guess -- as much as a person can be attached to their transit card.

Both these ladies are fun and geeky, with a real passion for all things Chicago.
