Illinois' 200th, 20 Sporting Events To See-- Part 11: The United Center
20. THE UNITED CENTER, Chicago
Seeing the current Bulls and Blackhawks playing at the "Madhouse on Madison" is thrilling, but sometimes infuriating, depending upon how the two teams are playing. The 90s were especially fun for Da Bulls (6 NBA Championships) and from 2010 to 2016 Da Hawks won three Stanley Cups.
But, no trip to Chicago's Near West Side is complete without visits to the statuers of Blackhawk greats Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita as well as Bulls great Michael Jordan.
You'll find the Hull and Mikita statues outside the center (hey, hockey is cold, you know). Michael is inside in an atrium.
Chicago Greats. --RoadDog
