Former WWE Diva and Greek Goddess Maria Kanellis is both a Cubs and Illini fan. Maybe the Illinois fan will be at Illini at the Cubs? Probably not. I’m sure she has better things to do. The Chicago I FUND is set to hosting Illini Day at Wrigley Field on Sunday, July 7, when the Cubs host the Pittsburgh Pirates at 1:20 p.m. Whoah Cubs vs Pirates!! Get your tickets now for an extremely relevant game with huge postseason implications now. There will be a rooftop party with Fighting Illini head basketball coach John Groce. Tickets are $105 each and include all food and beverages. When he’s not at the rooftop, Coach Groce will participate in a pair of events, throwing out the first pitch and singing “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the seventh-inning stretch. To order tickets to the Rooftop Party for Illini Day at Wrigley Field, complete the online registration at go.illinois.edu/illiniday. Illini fans need not worry though as baseball tickets are not in high demand these days. The I FUND also will host a pre-game reception at Rebel Bar & Grill in Wrigleyville (3462 N. Clark St.), with Coach Groce scheduled to attend at 11:30 a.m. Illini fans are encouraged not to think about Tim Beckman and football season when imbibing. Thinking about it could inspire Illini fans to put themselves in severe danger. Paul M. Banks is the owner of The Sports Bank.net.
