In the nick of time, Syracuse remembered how to win. James Mungro rushed 12 times for 162 yards and two fourth-quarter touchdowns as Syracuse rallied for a 20-13 victory over Kentucky in the Music City Bowl. It was the first victory since Nov. 6 for Syracuse (7-5), which ended the season by losing its last two games and four of five. Coach Paul Pasqualoni, who listened to fans calling for his job the past month, felt vindicated.

Gregory Lawrence Jefferson was a fifth-grader at Daniel Webster Elementary in Pasadena when he heard the sound that changed his life. After the Pasadena Symphony played at his school, the kids were invited to try the various instruments. "I was the one who picked up the flute," he says. "It was like a spark." He talked his parents into buying him one, started band and orchestra classes, and "things just took off from there."

Green Day is a great band if you're under 16 and bored, a demographic wide enough to generate sales of 8 million copies of the Bay Area trio's "Dookie" album last year. Singer-guitarist Billie Joe Armstrong and his mates, who filled all 14,500 seats at the scaled-down Pond of Anaheim on Tuesday, can serve up deliriously energized songs that chronicle teen suburban blues with the convincing ring of young men who have indeed been there and done that.

"Sweet Charity" (MCA, 148 minutes, color, digital sound, four sides, two extended-play CLV, two full features CAV, $39.95). Director Bob Fosse's choreography can only be appreciated in its original wide-screen format and, luckily, that's what MCA goes to for most of the 13 musical numbers. But, alas, MCA didn't have the courage to use this method all the way; the rest of the film looks as if the image was squeezed into one eyepiece of a pair of cheap binoculars.
