Only 2 Chicago Sky Home Games Left
The 2007 home schedule is coming to an end, so don't miss your last two chances this year to come out and cheer on the Sky. This Saturday, August 11 the Sky will host Eastern Conference rival Connecticut at 7pm. Hyperdogs, the famous, super-charged stunt dogs you have seen on ESPN, Animal Planet and Fox and Friends will perform at half-time. You think Armintie can jump? Wait until you see these world-class, Frisbee-catching dogs!
Our last home game of the season is on Tuesday, August 14 at 7pm against the New York Liberty. In honor of all of you Sky Fans, it's Fan Appreciation Night! Everyone will receive a 2007 Chicago Sky team poster. Everyone's invited to stick around after the game to take a pass from the players and shoot a lay-up! We'll randomly select 13 fans to participate in a special shoe exchange with the players at center court. Sky investor and star of The Color Purple, Michelle Williams, will be on hand to help us celebrate.

At half-time during this Saturday's game, Ocean Spray Craisins will sponsor a $50,000 shootout. The first 2,000 fans to enter the stadium will receive a Craisins water bottle.
