Clemson, SC

After doing a show nearby, I visited the Clemson University Football office for a special tour with Chad, the person responsible for the highlight reels for Clemson football. He took me to the stadium, nicknamed Death Valley, and showed me the sacred Howard's Rock that the team touches before running down a huge hill into the stadium. There were orange paw prints everywhere, even on the roads. Now I can definitely root for Clemson, especially when they beat Florida State.

West Lafayette, IN

Happy Mother's Day! I just finished my unofficial Big 10 tour with shows in Lafayette, IN and Bloomington, IN this week. It was not too bad until I told the Purdue kids I went to Notre Dame. They got over pretty quickly when I started making fun of Kyle Orton. Apparently no one really likes that guy -- unless you play safety in the NFL and can pad your stats by getting a bunch of interceptions when you play the Bears.
