And now it's time for news no one expects me to know: Today the Chicago WNBA made their debut, announcing their team name and colors. They will be the Chicago Sky, sporting (what else?) sky-blue and a nice sunny-yellow. Not bad choices, given what other city-inspired colors one might potentially dream up (Beneath-the-Tracks Brown, anyone?). The team starts playing at the UIC Pavillion in May 2006.
