Rank 'Em: Chicago Games of the Decade

Created: December 20, 2009, 8:14 PM

White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle tossed the 17th perfect game in regular-season history on July 23, 2009.

The decade started out fairly weak but rebounded to include two almost unthinkable feats: the Cubs five outs away from a World Series, and the White Sox winning their first in 88 years. Throw in a Bears Super Bowl, a Blackhawks resurgence, a memorable Bulls-Celtics playoff series and a South Side lefty's perfect outing, and the latter part of the decade proved especially memorable.

We've done our best to comb through all the great games to come up with what we consider the 15 best. Now it's your turn to tell us what you think are the top Chicago games of the 2000s.
