Synopsis by Alice Duncan
Chicago's history is filled with memorable sports events, stars, and outstanding teams. In 1933, Babe Ruth hit a famous homer in the first All-Star Game at Comiskey Park. In 1940, the Bears beat the Redskins 73 to zero in football's most lopsided playoff game. In 1953, Rocky Marciano knocked out Jersey Joe Walcott. In 1966, Bobby Hull made more than 50 field goals in one season and set an NHL record. Walter Payton broke Jim Brown's rushing record in 1984. And, after this film was made, the Bulls -- led by Michael Jordan -- won six NBA championships in the 1990s. This documentary offers highlights (beginning in 1906) from 80 years of Chicago sports involving Chicago-based athletes and teams, including the Cubs, the White Sox, the Bears, the Black Hawks, and others.
