Football Parties and Other Apprehensions About Sports

More than a Phoenix They are a FORCE

To think that only 10 years ago there was no professional woman’s football league in Chicago – what a difference a decade can make…. The city was filled with women playing flag football, but no professional full tackle football was in sight. An influx of Division 1 athletes flooded the fields in the Chicago land […]
