These “adults” almost got into a fight over whether or not lacrosse and other organized sports for children should be played in a Chicago’s park.
Last week, neighbors passionately argued at the Park Advisory Council meeting, often shouting over each other. At one point, Esposito told an Arrigo Park neighbor: "Relax. Don't f---ing blink at me, either."
Park supervisor Murphy asked for the swearing and hostile exchange to stop.
"I will not stand for people being nasty at my park," he said.
Later, Esposito apologized.
"I apologize for swearing, I'm sincerely sorry," he said. "But the way certain people talk and act and give you the blink is no better."
Hopkins women’s team is pumped to start their first season in the Big Ten.
Notre Dame’s game versus Team USA was its first of four 2017 preseason games.
Corrigan normally schedules a pair of preseason games. This year there are four-beginning Sunday with Notre Dame's outing in Bradenton, Florida, in Team USA's Spring Premiere event and continuing the next three weekends in South Bend against Bellarmine, Air Force and Detroit.
"It's totally by design," said Corrigan Sunday. "We've been a certain kind of team and we need to determine under fire if we're still that kind of team or if we need to make adjustments and what those adjustments are. Those decisions are hard to make practicing against yourselves. "The last couple of years we came into the spring with an identity we knew and understood. It was easy to work toward that identity. This year it's just not the case. Forming that is hard-that vision of what you want be."
Former Northwestern BALLER Kristen Kjellman Marshall teams up with her mother to publish this picture book to help teach kids letters and lacrosse.
Class of 2003 Westwood High School graduate Kristen Kjellman Marshall conquered the lacrosse field here and at Northwestern University, where she graduated as a four time All-American player.
Now, she has her sights set on the publishing world, with the release of "The ABCs of Girls' Lacrosse." In July, Kjellman Marshall, now of Rye, N.H., and her mother, Westwood resident Joanna Cook Kjellman, published the picture book for children through Mascot Books, when they found that there was nothing like it available. "After I had my daughter in 2015, we were looking for a book that would introduce her to lacrosse, and everything was really instructional," said Kjellman Marshall. "We thought it would be a great idea to do something that also taught children their ABCs."
