I'm such a chronic over-estimator of my own talent that it's disorienting when I pleasantly surprise myself. But with a story about the Chicago Force women's football team that aired this morning on Chicago Public Radio's Eight Forty Eight show at 9:00 central time, I actually managed to do it.

All my thumbs and I are grateful to WBEZ producers Aurora Aguilar and Joe DeCeault for being so encouraging and for cleaning up after my technical messes. Most editors make rookies feel like rookies—and try as hard as they can to make veterans feel like rookies too. Not these guys.
And speaking of veterans and rookies, the Force's are all traveling to Seattle for round one of the Independent Women's Football League playoffs to face the mighty Majestics.
Force Family Win.
And I’m Mara Liasson!!!
That is so exciting, David. I hope it’s in archive somewhere so I can hear it.
