The Central Illinois Drive (3-0 in PBL) demonstrated the simple beauty of fundamental basketball Saturday while downing the Chicago Muscle, 113-79, in front of 1,558 fans at U.S. Cellular Coliseum. Rodney Edgerson led the Drive with 25 points on 8-of-11 shooting including 4-of-7 accuracy from 3-point range. Illinois State University grad Tony Lewis was in the paint wrecking havoc for the Drive with 20 points and 11 rebounds. Chicago, which had lost an exhibition game here 96-90 on New Year’s Eve, broke on top, 12-8, but a 10-0 run sparked by a Todd Peterson 3-pointer put the Drive in front to stay.

Images from The Miracle League game today between the Cubs and the Cardinals. I was on hand to show support for my friend Payton McSimov who is anĀ Easter Seals Ambassador. My plan was to take a few shot’s of him playing a game that he truly loves. Well, my emotions got the best of me as I could not believe what I seeing. These young athletes put on a extremely entertaining display of there baseball skills. When I arrived back in Peoria to download my digital files I found that I had taken 1,237 images. That is nothing new for anyone who knows me. I never set limits and will shoot until I get what is needed. The photo’s will add up when you own camera’s that will capture 10 frames per second. I always welcome your comments.
