MILWAUKEE - Nothing beats a good tailgate, with the ice-cold beer, the team spirit and the way it brings people together.

In this case, the Brewers brought Brian McLaughlin of Rhinelander together with his son Blair, who lives in Chicago.

"After the final win in the last series against the Rockies, he called me up and said 'let's go to the game' and I said 'go ahead and get it,' so here we are," Brian McLaughlin said.

Brian raised Blair in the Milwaukee area, where he passed down his die-hard Brewer fandom to his son.

And even though Blair moved to the Windy City, he's always cheered on the Brewers, especially in their one game playoff against the Cubs.

TOMAHAWK - Two high school swim teams in the Northwoods always send athletes to the state meet.

The past few years these two teams have gone through the entire regular season undefeated until meeting each other in their last conference dual.

That time has come again as Tomahawk hosted Rhinelander Thursday to battle it out for the GNC swim title.

Rhinelander came into the meet being unbeaten but their times couldn't compare. 

The Hatchets won all 11 events in the battle of the two undefeated teams with a final score of 106 to 64.

The meet was even more special for the two Hatchet senior captains, Katy Volz and Kaylee Svacina.

MILWAUKEE - The Milwaukee Brewers logo has been on hats, t-shirts and all kinds of other clothing. It just doesn't usually go in people's hair.

Tony the Barber never let convention dictate his style.

"I've been a barber for 15 years and I started doing the signs, like, 10 years ago," Tony said.

With the Milwaukee Brewers surging in the playoffs, people like Matthew Reyes have been coming in to get the logo in their hair. Matthew is getting Milwaukee's old-school logo cut, which is a surprise from his father, Luis.

DENVER - Wade Miley pitched masterfully into the fifth inning before turning it over to a lights-out Milwaukee bullpen, 38-year-old catcher Erik Kratz kept up his torrid hitting and the Brewers beat the Colorado Rockies 6-0 in Game 3 on a cool, misty Sunday to sweep their NL Division Series.

The Brewers have won 11 straight dating to the regular season and advance to their first NL Championship Series since 2011. They will play the winner of the Dodgers-Braves series, starting Friday at Miller Park.

GREEN BAY (AP) - Aaron Rodgers threw three touchdown passes in the second half after returning from a knee injury, and the Green Bay Packers overcame a 20-point deficit for a thrilling 24-23 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night.

Rodgers, who was carted off in the first half, connected with receiver Randall Cobb for a catch-and-run through the secondary for a 75-yard touchdown and the go-ahead score with 2:13 left in the game.

Nick Perry sacked the Bears' Mitchell Trubisky on fourth-and-10 with 58 seconds to complete the comeback.

A Chicago defense featuring newly acquired star linebacker Khalil Mack dominated until the third quarter. Mack had a 27-yard interception return for a touchdown against backup quarterback DeShone Kizer in the second quarter.

A gimpy Rodgers returned in the second half and finally figured out the Bears. He also found Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison for touchdown passes.
