Truth be told, it required some research to even remember that Tyrone “T.J.” Scafe played on Waukegan High School’s varsity boys basketball team during the 2012-2013 season, which was Ron Ashlaw’s last season as the team’s coach. Blame it on some combination of Scafe being a second-team player on the Bulldog squad that year, and age-related memory loss on the part of the person sitting on this side of your newspaper or laptop screen. As a result, T.J.’s story went untold throughout his four years of high school and through his freshman year at Williams College in Massachusetts.

Come along for the ride(s) at Great America’s Coaster Challenge
The perfect chapeau to hide the ever-graying head of hair would be one of those two-brimmed baseball caps — ideally one that featured the Great America amusement park in Gurnee on one brim and the Illinois Special Olympics on the other.

For Chicago Bears fans, Friday night’s game at Seattle against the defending Super Bowl champion Seahawks is must-see TV. But if you live in North Chicago, there’s a whole other reason to tune in ... so be prepared to stay up late, as the kickoff is at 9 p.m., and the game will on TV station FOX-32 (WFLD), which is Channel 12 if you have Comcast cable.

‘Little guys’ blow up the North Suburban Conference
Frank Sinatra was the singer, and his hit record was called “It Was A Very Good Year.” That was 1966. Thought about that song title/phrase the other day when Grayslake High School (both Central and North) Superintendent Catherine Finger announced via school website that the Grayslake schools’ athletic teams will be joining a new conference starting no later than the 2016-2017 school year.

Rain, rain stay away; come around some other day
EXTRA POINT: Random thoughts from someone typing while sitting ankle-deep in a pool of sweat, the product of 24/7 worrying about the chance of rain next week Saturday afternoon when No. 2 son says “he does” to a very special young woman who will say “she does” in return — hopefully with the sun and the heavens smiling down upon them both because the blessed event is taking place outdoors.
