Starved for football? Want to cheer on a winner? You might check out the Chicago Force, our local women's tackle football team. After going 7-2 last year, they've won their first two games this season 69-0 and 58-0. They play at home tomorrow and the next two Saturdays. All games start at 4 p.m. at Winnemac Stadium (5105 N. Leavitt).
