1:45 PMKid Rock is in attendance at the Breslin Center today and was the recipient of a loud ovation from the crowd as "Cowboy" played over the sound system. This got me thinking, what other Michigan celebrities could we see at a Spartans game?
Eminem - Marshall Mathers is the obvious choice. He would be nervous, but on the surface he would look calm and ready.
Stevie Wonder - Stevie Wonder would make a great guest. You wouldn't even have to waste a front row seat on him. Just turn up the volume on the television in the men's room and put him in the last stall with a box of popcorn and he'll be just fine.
Steven Seagal - Casey Ryback from Under Seige could not only be a special guest fan but he could also serve as Breslin Center security. "Hey kid, put that noise maker up or take this roundhouse kick to the face."
James Earl Jones - If Jones could find time in his busy schedule on The Sandlot or in The Field of Dreams, the Spartan cheers could use some extra bass.
Ed McMahon - Is he still alive? He's gotta be like 124 years old. Someone look into that for me.
Aretha Franklin - Aretha Franklin would be perfect for singing the national anthem or eating the leftover Johnsonville bratwursts before the concession stand throws them out, but I don't know about putting her in the crowd. Have you seen her hats? How would you like to sit behind that monstrosity?
Scott Skiles - A Michigan State grad and the smallest player on the NBA Jam roster.
Casey Kasem - A dedication to Casey Kasem at the half would make Greg in California and Karen in Connecticut feel all warm and fuzzy inside. As long as it's a Top 40 love ballad. Preferably, Enrique Iglesias.
Shaggy 2 Dope & Violent J - The Insane Clown Posse is a rap duo from Detroit with a giant cult following of "Juggalos" and horror-core sound. On second thought, ICP would male terrible guests.
Bob Eubanks - Drop the Kiss Cam for the Makin' Whoopee Cam and play The Newlywed Game during timeouts.
Steve Phillips - For those overweight MSU co-eds looking for some Baseball Tonight lovin'
That's all I got. Can you think of any other good Michigan celebrities?
