• Looks like a good time was had by all at Norwich’s Spirit Week Talent Show last night. Brian Golden posted a hilarious video of student Robert Jeffrey doing a … well, you should really see it for yourself, because it defies description. Click on this.

• Can you believe out of all 10,000 high school musicals I’ve seen, one of them is not “Seven Brides for Seven Brothers?” I can’t share in Melissa Stagnaro’s enthusiasm for the film, because I haven’t seen that either. Anyway, if you’re so inclined, you can check it out at Greene High School this weekend, as their Footlights club performs the musical tonight, Saturday and Sunday.

• Speaking of musicals, I’m already getting excited for next weekend’s show at Norwich – “Phantom of the Opera.” My old friend Mark Sands has really bitten off a big chunk of stage with this one. I can’t wait to see how the Tornado thesps pull this one off. Watch for my review and coverage next week.

• Although I won’t be humiliating myself on the lanes this weekend, tomorrow’s the 24th annual Bowl for Kids’ Sake benefit for Chenango’s Big Brother/Big Sister program, from noon to 4 p.m. at Plaza Lanes.

• And in sports news (there’s a phrase you won’t often read in this blog), Sun Sports Editor Pat Newell reveals his picks for the 2011 Evening Sun All-Stars team for boys basketball in today’s edition.

• Have a great weekend everybody!
