Have you been thinking how nice it would be to have a Chicago sports team enter playoffs without a single loss? Then you're in luck. The Chicago Force our Women's Pro Tackle football team (member of the Independent Women's Football League) will be playing their first playoff game on Saturday June 21st. With the average score being something like 50-0, and $10 tickets ($5 for kids) you'd be silly not to go to De La Salle Stadium and watch these women show the boys in town how to make a victory.

But if sitting in the sun and watching women tackle each other isn't your idea of fun, then maybe you'd enjoy a documentary about this history-making team. Three local filmmakers will be having the world premiere of A Day on the Force on June 20, 6 pm at the Gene Siskel Film Center. This was part of the 72 Hour Feature Project which is an international filmmaking competition where participants have 72 hours or less to complete a feature film. This film had 9 camera crews, 40 hours of footage, and four computer systems working around the clock to get this film in.
