Whether it’s the beginning of baseball season, hockey/basketball playoff games, the football draft, and finally […]

The Chicago Cubs want YOU to Sing the National Anthem or Throw Out the First Pitch

If you were anything like me, as a kid, you spent your summer watching the Cubs with your grandparents or brothers and sisters on WGN. I used to think that the people who got to throw out the first pitch were the luckiest people to ever live. To walk in front of 40,000+ screaming fans […]

Northwestern Women’s Lacrosse: The Best Team You Don’t Know

By Aidee Woods If I asked you which Chicago team has been the winningest in recent history, the possibilities of whom it would not be are pretty obvious. That team on Addison comes to mind.

Celebration of the Tomboy – The 40th Anniversary of Title IX

In a conversation with a friend today I had mentioned how Title IX was celebrating its 40th year. There was a long silence, maybe a deep breath…and it struck me. Not everyone knows what Title IX is, how foolish of me. For those of you who are not part of my Ponytail Posse of female […]
