Madonna Hates Chicago: Letter From 'A League Of Their Own' Days Shows Distaste For Windy City

While many Chicagoans consider themselves big fans of Madonna, it turns out Madonna is not such a big fan of Chicago.

While filming "A League of Their Own" in 1991, Madonna wrote a letter to friend and photographer Steven Meisel--and vented about "Barbie doll" Geena Davis and the lack of hot guys in Chicago.

A transcription of the letter was obtained by Letters of Note, which also has an image courtesy of Hard Rock Memorabilia.

". . . I cannot suffer any more than I have in the past month," Madonna writes. ". . .learning how to play baseball with a bunch of girls (yuk) in Chicago (double yuk). . ."

Madonna, whose character Mae Mordabito was not a big fan of Geena Davis' character Dottie Hinson in the film, apparently didn't have to do much acting in that regard:

"Geena Davis is a Barbie doll," she writes, "and when God decided where the beautiful men were going to live in the world, he did not choose Chicago."

Any rebuttal, Chicagoans?
