The Rutgers Stadium Guitar Hero

Richie Sambora, eat your heart out.

In the waning minutes of last night's Rutgers blowout over Louisville this kid took to the Jumbotron at the stadium and blew the crowd away with his Guitar Hero-esque performance of Bon Jovi's "Shot Through the Heart." We were all hoping that video of his performance would hit the internet today and it has.
Let me say: This kid is a legend.

The crowd went absolutely nuts during his performance and he probably got the biggest cheer of the night. He's already become known as "Bon Jovi Kid." All we know that his name is Nicholas and that his father posted the video on YouTube.

Highlights of his performance were clearly his finger gun during the words "You're a loaded gun" (:32 and 1:34) and then the mind-blowing guitar solo (2:04). Everyone in the press box was completely riveted when he was on the big screen last night.

I don't know if he's practiced those moves or he winged it on the fly (which would make his performance that much more awesome), but he was great.

Look, I'll be the first one to admit that this isn't even close to news, but as long as we're talking about A-Rod's undies, I'm obliged to share this with those not present at Thursday night's Louisville-Rutgers game.

Plus, it's just downright hysterical to watch.
