For example, in northern Indiana you will probably find as many Cubs, Tigers and Reds fans as Sox fans, not to mention the ubiquitous Red Sox and Yankees fans.
Chicago is the third biggest metro area and media market in the US. It is bigger by a large margin than Dallas, Detroit and Toronto. That's all I'm saying. I had my demographics argument here a while back. Don't want another.
