'Gary from Chicago' Earns Himself Bears, Bulls Gifts
Remember "Gary from Chicago," the supposed tourist who found his way into the Oscars and America's hearts simultaneously?
For those who need a refresher (or didn't watch the show): Host Jimmy Kimmel supposedly had Gary Coe believe he was going on a regular Hollywood tour, but was brought in front of the stage during the broadcast along with other tourists. People loved Coe so much that #GaryFromChicago was trending during the show.
Well, hopefully Gary is a sports fan, because his hometown teams took notice, and want to give him gifts for representing their city on the national stage.

Gary from Chicago! We've got you covered if you want to come to a game! #Oscars

Though the Bulls didn't flat out say they would give him any physical items, we can only assume he'd at least receive some sort of promotional item at the arena.
Who knows? Maybe the Cubs and White Sox can duke it out over Gary from Chicago's allegiance (if he hasn't already made that public).
