1. Two outs. Bottom of the seventh. One man on. Game tied. Those sound like the makings of a dramatic playoff victory for the Highland Park Scots.
2. Speaking of Highland Park High School, I heard the senior prank got pulled this week. Sources tell me that a bevy of bouncing balls were poured from a balcony overlooking the cafeteria, with some balls landing in students’ food. Any eyewitnesses want to provide further details?
3. Have you ever browsed in the Metropark store at NorthPark and thought, “I like that, but I’m not willing to pay that much”? Now you have an opportunity to get that item for less. The chain announced yesterday that it is going out of business. Stores will remain open until all of the marked-down merchandise is sold.
