Bears, Rashied Davis bowling for kids

Former Bears wide receiver Rashied Davis may be waiting for the phone to ring with a call from an NFL team in need, but he is doing anything but just sitting around.
To help Chicago Public School students, Rashied Davis Charities is hosting its first annual Bowling for Brighter Tomorrows event to support Saturday Place, its academic enrichment program.
Bowling for Brighter Tomorrows will take place on Monday, November 12, from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. at Lucky Strike on 322 East Illinois Street in Chicago. Davis will host the event and be joined by former teammates and Bears including Lance Briggs, Nick Roach, Israel Idonije, D.J. Moore, Jason Campbell, Matt Speth, Geno Hayes, Anthony Adams, Big Cat Williams, and Garrett Wolfe. Other local celebrities such as Laurence Holmes from WSCR The Score, Ryan Chiaverini from Channel 7s Windy City Live and Ashley Hooks, Miss Illinois USA 2012.
Lanes can be purchased for 2500 and individual ticket prices are 100 for pre-sale (or 200 at the door). Individual pre-sale tickets are available here.
The proceeds raised from Bowling for Brighter Tomorrows will benefit Saturday Place, a once-a-week program for 3rd and 4th grade Chicago Public School students who are performing at least one year below grade level.

Bastian Schweinsteiger happy with Manchester United's Europa League win

Bastian Schweinsteiger happy with Manchester United's Europa League win

Bastian Schweinsteiger's time with Manchester United wound down with him being essentially frozen out of the team for an extended period, but he was still happy to see his former teammates win a European trophy on Wednesday.

Man U beat Ajax 2-0 to win the Europa League final in Stockholm. The win sealed a berth in next year's Champions League for the Red Devils.

Despite the way Schweinsteiger's tenure in England ended, the German midfielder has still said positive things about the club since leaving for the Chicago Fire in March. He tweeted out a good luck message to the team ahead of the final.

Paul Pogba scored in the first half and Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored in the second half to seal United's win and the trophy to end a season that included a sixth-place finish in the Premier League.

Schweinsteiger didn't play in any Premier League matches this season, but his last appearance for the Manchester club was as a subtitute in the Europa League round of 32 at French club Saint-Etienne.

Training with the Fire on Wednesday kept him from watching the whole final, but he said he did watch what he could.

“I’m happy for United," Schweinsteiger said after the Fire's 2-1 win against Dallas. "I’m happy for them. They are a good team and I’m happy they can play in Champions League next year.”
