Family fun! DePaul Blue Demons Women's Basketball

The DePaul Blue Demons thrashed the Creighton Bluejays in fast paced Big East action on January 23rd.
 As the kids get older we find ourselves "rediscovering" more and more things around the city. About a  week ago we caught the always competitive Blue Demons Women's Basketball team at McGrath- Phillips Arena 2323 North Sheffield Avenue, Chicago, IL 60614 on the DePaul Campus of Lincoln Park.

It's a high quality inexpensive sports production in your backyard.  Easy to get to (CTA Red Line at Fullerton, walk, cab) and great for the kids.  We're sort of a "basketball" family. Having several local big time college programs near by the house is a real benefit to living in the city.
