Who's played longer than Cubs record game? (Hint: Look south)
Looking back at the longest games in Chicago sports history
Ever feel like you've been to a game that just won't end? That's what it felt like last night for Cubs fans, who sat through 6 hours and 27 minutes at the Cubs battled the Rockies in 16 innings until 1:27 a.m.
But that's not the longest game in Chicago history. Here's a look at the longest games for the Bulls, Blackhawks and White Sox.
Anybody catch all of the Sox marathon against the Brewers on May 8, 1984? The Sox won 7-6 after 25 innings that took 8 hours and 6 minutes.

You don't have to go back too far for the Blackhawks longest game in team history. Blackhawks forward Andrew Shaw ended Game 1 of the 2013 Stanley Cup Finals against the Bruins with a goal at the 12:08 mark in the third overtime. At 4 hours and 45 minutes, it's the fifth longest game in Stanley Cup Finals history. The Hawks went on to win the series in 6 games.
It took four overtimes, but the Bulls finally got past Portland 156-155 on March 16, 1984. That game lasted 3 hours and 24 minutes. And, in case you didn't know, the shortest game in Bulls history was 1 hour and 42 minutes against Houston on Dec. 2, 1978. Bulls won 105-91.
