How Did You Spend YOUR Friday?

Back in July, Olympic softball superstar Jennie Finch became the first (and still only) female to take part in The Hall's weekly "Friday 5" feature.  This Friday, I'm pretty sure she became the first to have a street named after her as well.

As part of the Chicago Bandits new $6 million stadium being built in Rosemont, Illinois...they included, you guessed it, Jennie Finch Way.

Not Batting Stance Guy Lane.

Not Matt Antonelli Boulevard.

Jennie Finch Way.

"Chicago and the Bandits have been such a big part of my career," Finch said at the groundbreaking. "They are both in my heart, and to be honored this way is nothing short of amazing."

Construction of the 2000 seat stadium should be completed in time for the 2011 season and will be built to comply with all NCAA standards so that it can also be used for college championships or tournaments.

So again, I ask...how did you spend YOUR Friday?  Did you get a street named after you?!?
