Simone Biles and Jonathan Owens are grateful for the way Chicago has welcomed them

Chicago greeted its newest residents, Jonathan Owens and Simone Biles, with wide arms as they visited the city over the weekend. 

Owens, a recent Chicago Bears signee, and Biles, a celebrated gymnast, expressed their enthusiasm for their new home in an interview with the team's official website.

Owens found Chicago's cityscape to be breathtaking. Owens had never been to a downtown location like Chicago before, having grown up in St. Louis and spent the majority of his career in Houston and Green Bay. 

He amazed at the towers and dazzling lights, describing it as "sensory overload."Biles, on the other hand, fondly remembers Chicago from her collegiate gymnastics contests. 

She and her mother used to visit the city for meetings, go shopping, and explore the colorful streets. Returning to Chicago brought back those treasured memories for Biles.

The pair spent the weekend immersing themselves in Chicago culture, from trying new restaurants to watching the White Sox at Guaranteed Rate Field.

Owens even had the opportunity to toss the ceremonial first pitch, realizing a longstanding desire.

Despite her original assumption of a "50 Cent" wild pitch, Biles was pleasantly delighted by Owens' precision, calling it a beautiful toss. "I actually believed he'd throw a '50 Cent.'
