Yesterday, to help launch SB Nation Chicago, I wrote a feature about who I thought were the five most popular athletes in Chicago right now.â†µ
As often happens with lists like this, controversy erupted right away. The editors at SBNation.com couldn't believe I left Derrick Rose off the list, and one of the commenters laid in "who's Ryan Dempster" accompanied by a profanity, ignoring all the good works Dempster does in the community and his team leadership.â†µ
So here's your chance. Attached to this post is a poll with the five men I listed yesterday, with Derrick Rose added. Vote for your favorite. Let's find out who your most popular Chicago athletes are.
