Chicago Fire (the Show)

Has anyone else ever noticed the crew on Chicago Fire seem to cover most of the city and all their fires are major and have some sort of big drama? Yet 5 minutes later they are back at the Firehouse, unscathed, sootless and back to their personal drama No small cooking fires or false alarms for Firehouse 51!

    Ha, great picture 60660Gal. The only thing that would make it better would be a wind machine blowing their hair. I used to like this show but it became too soap-opera-ey. It is cool to see Chicago locations though. Come on folks every show on TV has some degree of corny. This one just has an extra helping, that's all.

  • I know its drama and corny..but I do watch it and like it. I was being humorous..well trying to be

Baseball/Little League in Edgewater/Uptown/Rogers Park

Wondering if someone can tell me about the baseball/little league options in my area. My son is 6, and played one year of Little League last year (but in NY) He'd like to play baseball again. The only option I could find online was Honer Park. Is there anything else? We're close enough that we could play in Evanston also.
