3. You visit often and/or have extended stays in your old home town.
4. You "willingly" moved to your new place because your work required it, for family reasons, etc., not because you no longer love your hometown.
5. You are loyal-to-fanatic about your home town teams.
6. In your new town (also a big city), you know quite a few people who also came from your home town. Items 1,2, 3, 4 and/or 5 apply to them in varying degrees as well.
7. You love Chicago.
Yep- not really a very hard concept to grasp.
I grew up in Chicago- but then lived in different places for work (Ann Arbor, Milwaukee, Richmond, San Francisco)- I liked having access to Channel 9 news, always bought a Tribune when I could in Ann Arbor & Milwaukee, liked picking up AM 670 at night, etc.
Not quite as big of a deal with the internet-but if I still lived away from Chicago- I'd probably record the Channel 9 news on my DVR-
