With apologies to Stephen Colbert, this is the first installment of an infinite series called, 'Reasons Why'. Throughout this series we will highlight Reasons Why Chicago should be the new home of Conan O'Brien. Let's get right down to it.
The first reason that Conan O'Brien should come to Chicago is ...US! That's right -- you, me, him, her, them, and those guys over there. We are the reason that Conan should come to Chicago. We stood in lines wrapped around the block for the entire week he was here in 2006. We rallied for him outside NBC tower during the 'I'm with Coco' campaign. And we are the first, and still the only, city to be actively campaigning for Conan to come to our city! Now we don't think that we are entitled to anything for these action and we don't want to sound too full of ourselves -- and we're not, we're a 'Midwest Nice' sort of group, but we think these actions speak pretty loudly -- we're a pretty nifty group and we think Conan should join us.
Come back soon for more Reasons Why Conan should come to Chicago.
