Ramblers’ success unifies Rogers Park
CHICAGO—(ENEWSPF)—March 30, 2018

Unless you’ve just returned from a part of the world with no Internet access and cable TV, you know that the Chicago’s 49th Ward home team, the Loyola Ramblers Men’s Basketball team, stunned and thrilled sports fans everywhere by advancing to the Final Four of the NCAA Division 1 basketball tournament.
Driven by grit, teamwork and a coach who inspires the players to believe in themselves (and also, no doubt, some well-placed prayers by the team’s spiritual leader, Sister Jean), the Ramblers have risen to heights no one could have imagined at the start of the season. With the exception of die-hard Michigan Wolverines fans, everyone throughout the sports world will be rooting for the Ramblers when they play this Saturday evening.
In the spirit of this historic moment, Chicago’s 49th Ward Alderman, Joe Moore, along with the New 400 Theaters are once again in sponsoring a free viewing of the Loyola game on the big screen. In order to accommodate the ever-growing attendance, the game will be shown in three theaters.
Tip-off is Saturday, March 31st, at 5:09 p.m. Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. The theater is located at 6746 N. Sheridan in Chicago (just south of Pratt). Plan to arrive early to guarantee yourself a good seat.
Admission is free on a first-come, first-served basis.
Food and refreshments will be available for purchase and the theater offers a full bar.
