Three "Brady Bunch" cast members reunited at the Ohio amusement park King's Island over the weekend. That's the place where they filmed an episode 40 YEARS AGO. Barry Williams (Greg Brady), Christopher Knight (Peter) and Susan Olsen (Cindy) were there.
This was the episode where the dad, Mike, is presenting some architectural plans for the park to the directors, but the canister with the plans gets mixed up with one that has Jan's Yogi Bear poster.
Jan loses Mike's canister, and the family has to scour the park to find it before Mike's meeting ends. Once they find it, there's a classic sequence where they do a RELAY RACE to deliver the plans back to Mike in time. Watch it here.
I got the opportunity to check out One Night With Janis Joplin at the Milwaukee Rep. It's a full on concert experience as if we were able to go back in time to see Janis Joplin live. The Actress playing Janis nailed it. You also get the chance to experience the music of some of Janis Joplin's influences from Etta James to Aretha Franklin to Blues Singer Bessie Smith. The actress playing that role could "sing the paint off the walls" she was unbelievable. A very fun night and if you are a fan of Janis I would highly recommend checking it out.
College football teams are holding their spring practice this month, and most of them end the two weeks of practice with a scrimmage game . . . offense against defense.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers had theirs on Saturday in front of 60,000 fans . . . and the highlight was when a seven-year-old kid named Jack Hoffman got to come onto the field.
Jack had a golf-ball-sized tumor removed in 2011 . . . and he's still undergoing treatment for cancer. He became friends with some of the Nebraska players while undergoing 60 weeks of chemotherapy.
So the team invited Jack to run a play in their spring game. They called a play . . . the quarterback handed him the ball . . . and Jack ran 69 yards for a touchdown.
ELMO made an appearance at the White House Easter Egg Roll on Sunday . . . but obviously, the man behind the Muppet was NOT KEVIN CLASH. No one has confirmed that this new puppeteer was Kevin's permanent replacement, but he really had the voice down.

--Sean Connery's spoken word version of "In My Life" from 1998 tops the list, which also includes Bill Cosby's version of "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", and William Shatner doing "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds".
A local weatherman from Los Angeles fell for the oldest prank in the book last week. He was reading birthday messages submitted by viewers on Wednesday. One of them was for a 10-year-old kid with the first name "Hugh" and the last name "Janus". At first, Henry DiCarlo didn't realize it was a prank. But once he did, he couldn't stop laughing.
