Juice, Beckman to sing

Friday is Illini Day at Wrigley Field as the Cubs host the rival St. Louis Cardinals (1:20 p.m., Fox Sports Midwest, Comcast SportsNet). Here’s the skinny: 

The first 10,000 fans ...

Get a Red Grange bobblehead when they enter the Friendly Confines. The former Illini great played his first pro football game at Wrigley Field.

Before the game ...

Former Illini Kelvin Hayden will take the mound for the ceremonial first pitch. A defensive back for the Bears, Hayden will have the crowd on his side.

In the seventh inning ...

Illinois football coach Tim Beckman and former quarterback-turned-staffer Juice Williams will
team up to sing “Take Me Out To The Ballgame.”

It would be fun if the sports teams worked as a group to do dancing videos to upload to youtube for pharrel williams 'happy' song. Peeps from around the world are putting up videos to join the 24 hours of LA based dancers who are spreading their joy. 

That's how we are going to make things better, thru happiness and joy. 

Fear is a control program. Not good at all.
