Guess what? There’s a women’s football (that’s American football) league, and it’s got a Chicago team called the Force.
Even better: my fellow triathlete and bike/run spinning class instructor Mandy is a rookie wide receiver on the team!
If you’re in town and want to spectate, they play at Lane Tech HS field, and have a game this weekend, this Saturday at 3 PM against Detroit. Go Force!
UPDATE: My hometown of Pittsburgh has a team too, called the Passion.
