There are 2,430 baseball games in Major League Baseball's regular season. At 3 hours per game, that's about 304 days' worth (7,290 hours) of TV watching packed into about six months. And two Chicago-area residents are undertaking that challenge. Cubs fan Michael Bolling and White Sox fan Stanten Jones uprooted their lives to move to New York City in March after they were among the eight fans selected to be part of this year's MLB Fan Cave. Bolling, 23, was born on the West Side and has lived in the city his entire life.

Even some 800 miles away, in Brooklyn, N.Y., Jason Corbin couldn't help but hear about Chicago's struggles with increasing violence. “On the East Coast we turn on the news and the first thing we hear about is Chicago,” said Corbin, 32, a native of Long Island. As a firefighter and police officer, Corbin felt an obligation to keep the public safe, even if the distance between the two cities made it seem impossible. But as a self-proclaimed “tech guy,” he knew just the way to make it happen.

See them on the streets of New York City, pedaling fast, but going nowhere. They're New Yorkers, taking advantage of the city's new bike share program in an unexpected way: Instead of paying for a membership, checking the bikes out of their kiosks, and using them to commute, some people are turning the bike share stations around the city into make-shift stationary bikes, and riding them in place as though they were in an upscale spin class....

Hey, it's me, your one friend who moved to New York City, you know, to pursue acting/art/music. Things are going great. This week "Blue Bloods" filmed in the restaurant where I wait tables. And I'm pretty sure I saw Dennis Quaid on the street yesterday. Only in New York! But I have to admit I miss Chicago. You don't put your garbage on the sidewalks. So quaint! As you know, the Super Bowl is coming to New York this year and we are mildly excited. And by "New York" I mean New Jersey, which is like our Milwaukee.

For so many comedians, New York City is the goal. The path? Work hard, write new material, perform as many times as you can on stage in a week, get noticed and then move to the Big Apple … never looking back. The road for Hannibal Buress - who has lived in New York for five years - follows that general direction. Until, of course, you get to that last part. “Chicago is where I'm from,” said the 30-year-old comic while enjoying a drink at Old Town Ale House during a trip home over the holidays.

If you've ever found yourself near the corner of Ashland and Foster avenues at 11:30 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, you've probably seen folks lining up for The Neo-Futurists' signature show, "Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind," which has been continuously running - and selling out - since 1988. As such, "Too Much Light," which features 30 short plays performed in 60 minutes, is Chicago's longest-running show. To keep it fresh, a few plays are replaced with new works each week. "TML" debuted at the former Stage Left Theatre and...

If those new Coors Light commercials with Ice Cube haven't amounted to much laughter, at least they have borne the Coors Light Search for the Coldest contest. It's a competition to find the best battle-rappers from different cities across the country, and, after the recent finale in New York City, Chicago's own Mr. Hyde came out on top. Among his spoils were $20,000 and a verse from Bun B to go along with a beat from DJ Drama. Hyde, named Robert Hyde, grew up in South Bend but now lives in Lawndale.

When Susan Justice says writing her debut album “Eat Dirt” was “like therapy,” she's not blowing smoke. The singer-songwriter, the second oldest of 10 children, grew up as part of a cult known as The Family. “Eat Dirt” remains widely accessible while chronicling Justice's youth spent traveling the world (sleeping in places like vans and train station benches) and being told what she could think and read and listen to--and her ultimate decision to set out on her own. Then, Justice (not her real name)

As BBC America's "Copper" neared its first season finale last fall, star Tom Weston-Jones suggested that his character, Det. Kevin Corcoran, is capable of forgiving those who betrayed him. ( Season 1 spoilers ahead! ) The first trailer for the show's second season suggests otherwise, as Corcoran stares down his former best friend and fellow detective, Francis Maguire (Kevin Ryan). Later, Maguire pulls a gun on a man who from the back appears to be Corky, as Corcoran is called by his fellow officers working New York City's notorious immigrant...
