Tubing on the Streets of Tinley Park: Video

How to have fun and irritate some neighbors when your neighborhood is flooded.

Sammy Basketti posted a video to WGN weatherman Tom Skilling's timeline on Saturday after heavy rains flooded out some Tinley Park streets.

Tinley Park Mayor Ed Zabrocki didn't think much of what he called "the a------- driving pickup trucks full-speed down flooded streets, and you can quote me on that," he told Sun-Times Media.

“If the water is 4 or 5 feet from your house, this can cause 18-inch waves heading right toward the foundation. These guys are real jerks, and I hope we catch them,” Zabrocki said.

The planned round-about is a financial windfall for Zabrocki's son's company.

I've got to agree with Zabrocki. I didn't realize low life scum like that lived in Tinley.

@concerned go and get a life. Or, keep enjoying the a@@ f$cking you get everytime the village approves a roundabout or some other none sense expenditure. You must be a YES man. Weak!
