Open Thread: Chicago Sky hosts the New York Liberty for a Matinee Game

For the Sky, they just came back from a three game road trip and went 1-2 where they beat a team they were supposed to (Indiana given their injuries), and lost two others against Atlanta and Tulsa. Now the Sky's on a three game home stand where they also are undefeated and would like to keep things that way.

The Liberty is on a four game road trip with three games out West after today after a three game home stand where they game the Atlanta Dream their only loss, beat Connecticut, but lost to San Antonio in overtime. This road trip could very well put them in position to even be a Top 2 seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs or put them in a battle against the Washington Mystics for third place, assuming the Mystics can remain competitive in the standings all year.

The Random SB Nation songs of the day:

Since it's Kids' Day again, I'm going to put three classic PBS kids shows and their themes against each other.

First, Little Richard singing "Ride on the Magic School Bus" which is the theme of The Magic School Bus.

Second, we have Ziggy Marley and the Melody Makers with "Believe in Yourself", the theme of Arthur, a Canadian American show named after the kids book series.

Lastly, and this is the last embedded video. This show was syndicated a bit on PBS when I was a little boy and I cried watching it because I was scared of people dressed up as animals. Here's the theme for Zoobilee Zoo, which was an Emmy Award winning show, despite giving me coulrophobia. I think clowns are scary, but they scared me more. I don't think Pennywise was as scary to be honest because at least I knew he was going to be a bad guy from the beginning...

So enjoy the game today. And yes, I loved most PBS shows when I was a kid.
