We are the "Spartans" of Michigan State University.
(Remember when I had my picture taken with our mascot, Sparty?)
Scottish actor, Gerard Butler recently starred as a Spartan warrior king in the movie, 300. An excerpt from the movie (Gerard motivating his army before battle with the cry, "Spartans, what is your profession?") is played at the football games to enliven the crowd.
The surprise guest at this homecoming game was Gerard Butler! He led the crowd in his famous line and was clearly pleased with the sound of 75,000 fans responding, "Woot, woot, woot!"
I love our Spartan Spirit!
