"Little Bon Jovi" Becomes A 4th Quarter Fixture at Rutgers Football Games

I first talked about young Nicholas Sasso of South River, NJ in a March 2nd blog entry regarding Jon Bon Jovi's 47th birthday. Nicholas gained some notoriety at last season's football finale at Rutgers Stadium when he did a fourth quarter air guitar performance of Bon Jovi's You Give Love A Bad Name. It ended up on the video board of the South end zone, to the amusement of the fans. He was 11 years old at the time, and was a sensation, and even got some TV exposure from ESPN.

Now he's a ripe old 12 year old veteran, and has expanded his repertoire with Living On A Prayer, and has become a fourth quarter fixture at Rutgers home games. If its the last 15 minutes, its time for Nicholas, who's not nearly as much a tradition as the firing of the cannon after each score, or the playing of The Bells Must Ring....but he's young, and he's working on it.

Here's the YouTube video his father posted last year. Since this video was taken and posted Rutgers Stadium has been expanded and a new Jumbotron installed in the end zone- just a bigger venue that the 12 year old star in the making has to work with.



More on Nicholas from Rutgers Daily Targum.
