    Is the strike over? Cascia just tweeted that "any CPS Football teams are looking for a lighted field to use tonight, @StRitaFootball @StRitaHS is willing to host you. . . . . . . "

    Classy move by a classy program.

    Proud Alum! Classy gesture. I hope they get a chance to use it. Any CTU updates from those in the know?

    The Sun-Times posted a story at 915am outlining how CPS schools could practice today and remain eligible, the key element is they need to practice tonight. I’m sure that’s why SR tweeted.

    Correct. Just a nice move to do when they found out about it.

    Classy move? Watch them practice and offer a scholarship to anyone good enough to help you win 5A. Class.

    Ignatius, De La Salle, Flower, and several Charter schools that had an emergency need for a soccer field.

    Classy indeed!

    Don't mean to cast aspersions on Rita's sincerity or devalue their generosity, but I wonder how many CPS schools follow St Rita on Twitter to be aware of their kind offer.

    That's why they tagged some of the local prep reporters on the tweet, who in turn re-tweeted it. .

    And when they don't do what you suggested, I am sure you'll still be filled with the hate. Haters gonna hate, I guess.

    Another classy move. I don't tweet and obviously know just enough about it to be dangerous.

    Just saw St. Laurence pony up and offer their fields too. Does my heart good to see this kind of kindness.

    Honest question here...didn't CPS cross country or volleyball ask to practice with non-union coaches and were denied due to safety issues? If so, we now have football being allowed to do it, with non-union coaches, the most violent sport? Or did those other programs only ask to play the playoff games (no practice)?
