+ Davenport superintendent Arthur Tate said a last-second plan to address perceived school funding inequities by allowing the Davenport school district to use its cash reserves for one year offers "no help at all." Erin Murphy has the story.

This Cubs-Brewers matchup doesn't have the same sizzle as 2007 or 2008 -- when both teams were contenders -- but it's still a modern rivalry. And with rivalries sometimes comes upsets, but I'm not sure I'd count on last place, 8-11 Milwaukee coming into Wrigley and putting too much of a dent in the Cubs' six-game lead in the standings.
+ The king has been dethroned, and St. Louis is excited: "The Blues exorcised their first-round demons, snapping a string of three straight early playoff exits with a 3-2 victory in Game 7. They extinguished the NHL's defending champions, and kept alive their Stanley Cup hopes."
All that and it's just the first round. Long way to go. I follow the Blues, but "we" do not, so this ends the daily hockey updates in this space. Maybe this rivalry has turned the corner, especially with a Winter Classic in St. Louis between these two on the way in January.
