EVENT: Fulfill your pledge at a Chicago Red Stars game!

Remember my challenge to you my dear readers? The one where I asked you to pledge to attend ONE professional women's sporting event in 2010?  Well Chicago friends, July 25th is a wonderful chance to fulfill that pledge!

Chicago Red Stars vs Boston Breakers

July 25, 2010

3 PM

Toyota Park

$19 per ticket

For $19 you get discounted Harlem End tickets with a hot dog or pizza, dessert/fruit cup, and drink during a pre-game tailgate lunch at the stadium. You will be placed in seats with the “I Pledge to Attend a Women’s Sports Game 2010” group. If we purchase 50 tickets in this section, 11 lucky kids, age 11 and under, will be selected to be player escorts for the Chicago Red Stars, leading WPS players onto the field during introductions. Use our super special ticket portal to purchase your tickets!

If you haven't been to a Red Stars game, let me tell you that it's awesome. The crowd is super family friendly, parking is right outside the stadium and the game is great.

In case you are wondering, I am not benefiting from this promotion at all. Not one penny goes to me.

Now go get your tickets and I'll see you at the fruit cups.

Frederick, A Virtual Puppet Performance - Read by Michael Shannon

WOW...this is my first post during the Coronavirus pandemic! I hope you and your loved ones are healthy and safe. Thanks to the Chicago Children’s Theatre, the city’s largest professional theater devoted exclusively to children and families, for launching a new YouTube channel, CCTv: Virtual Theatre and Learning from Chicago Children’s Theatre. To kick if off we are treated to Frederick. Here's hoping this helps with your little ones. Or is a comfort to everyone of all ages. Chicago Children’s Theatre’s all-new virtual puppet performance was created while all of the artists were sheltering in place, working with resources limited to what they had in their homes or on their laptops. Frederick is directed by CCT Co-Founder and Artistic Director Jacqueline Russell. Puppets and sets were designed, built and puppeteered in a home studio by Grace Needlman and Will Bishop, CCT’s Director of Production, the creative team behind CCT’s annual series of Beatrix Potter puppet show

Book Review: Wolfpack by Abby Wambach

Less than a year ago, Abby Wambach took the stage at Barnard's commencement and gave a speech that shook many, including myself, to the core . Her speech went viral and I made the above image in order to share the highlights of her speech. Earlier this month Abby released the speech in book form. Wolfpack : How to Come Together, Unleash Our Power, and Change the Game is short (less than 100 pages) but is much more than just her speech . You get a peek into how the speech came together and why she said everything. And because the book is short and is an expanded speech, it moves quickly.

Abby has always been one of my favorite players. The way she ran amok on the pitch was exactly the way I felt I played sports. Never caring how you looked and giving it your all. Leaving it all on the field. When she retired from socc
