Saturday In The PARK / PA RinK

Saturday in the park
I think it was the Fourth of July (December 5th today)
People dancing, people laughing
A man selling ice cream
~ Famous words from Chicago's 1972 song "Saturday In The Park"

The Toronto Raptors enjoyed their visit to Chicago tonight and bombed the Bulls 110-79. But Toronto's hockey team didn't show up in Boston and lost 7-2.

The Chicago Blackhawks were in a PA rink tonight - Pittsburgh's to be specific. 2-1 win in overtime for the Hawks as Sidney Crosby was out of action with a groin injury. Another PA rink (in Philadelphia) had a new coach behind the bench and absolutely nothing to write home about. Peter Laviolette must have been livid as Washington beat the Philadelphia Flyers, 8-2.

"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." ~ John 16: 33 (New International Version of the Bible) 

Tim Tebow, the first sophomore in NCAA history to win the Heisman Trophy, is a devout Christian. He puts a bible verse on his eye black every game. Today's verse is above. The game did not go according to plan as
#2 Florida lost to #1 Alabama, 32-13. One of Tim Tebow's biggest fans is Caryn Clark... The Hip Chick Voice! Caryn paid tribute to Tim Tebow in her last blog post: You Gotta Have Faith!

I am sorry your team lost today Caryn, but I hope you have lots of cake tomorrow since it is your birthday.
