WORLD CUP --- I'm kidded around the office about my interest in soccer and I am referred to as NOW Newspapers 'Mr. Soccer.' That probably means that on a level of 1-10, with 10 being the smartest, I'm probably a 5, while everyone else is a 1-2. Not a lot to be proud about.
It's an important week for Brookfield High School Baseball this week, as Central and East battle each other Thursday and Friday.
Earlier this week the second-place Spartans (9-4) split with Marquette, losing on the road on Monday and then winning Tuesday night behind a brilliant 2-0 6-hitter by Brian Sylla at home. East is only one game in the loss column behind first-place Muskego (12-3).
