First, actor Gerard Butler spoke to the Michigan State football team on Friday evening. Later that night, he checked out the basketball team's Midnight Madness event at the Breslin Center and got the crowd fired up by doing his "Spartans, what is your profession?" chant from the movie 300. On Saturday, Butler concluded his MSU sports weekend by attending the Spartans' game against Illinois. Before kickoff, he again got on the mic and pumped up the crowd with his chant from 300.â†µ
By all accounts, Butler enjoyed his weekend in East Lansing quite a bit. He seemed genuinely excited to be at Midnight Madness and the football game, and needless to say, I think MSU fans enjoyed his presence quite a bit as well.
