Even if you caught the U.S. college football highlights from last weekend, chances are, you missed the REAL gem of the day..
Tom Petty was a music legend, no doubt about it – but, raised in Gainesville, Florida, he as also a huge Florida Gators fan. And on Saturday, the city honored their hometown hero in a manner that’s touching, chilling and an absolute must-see.
At the end of the third quarter, Tom’s hit “I Won’t Back Down” played at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium – and wouldn’t you know it? The sold out crowd saw their opportunity to pay tribute. Check it out..
Sure, there were a lot of tributes for Tom Petty over the past few weeks – but there’s something about 90,000 strong singing to his song that raises the arm hairs. By the way, the Gators lost by one point to LSU…but at least their supporters won the respect of music fans! ~ Jason
