National Sports Press Descends on Chicago

Is it because of the Blackhawks, Bulls or Cubs doing well?

No, the NFL Draft is taking place here this year, and wow is it spectacle. ESPN will be devoting 90 (90!) hours of programming from here beginning tomorrow. ESPN Radio is here too. From Radio Online...
