Notre Dame parents show their Fighting Irish spirit in lots of ways, whether they're wearing their Notre Dame gear or naming their pets Rockne or Domer. (We know an alumnus who did that.)

So it's not so surprising, then, that new Notre Dame parent Jon Bon Jovi rocked out at a show in Manchester, United Kingdom, with a Fighting Irish icon on his guitar. The rocker's son, Jesse Bongiovi, is a two-sport athlete who will be walking on to the Notre Dame football team this fall.

“I expect it to be one of the hardest things I’ll probably ever do, but I like a challenge,” Bongiovi told IrishSportsDaily. “I like being able to overcome things and step up to occasions. Hopefully, I’ll get to persevere through something that’s pretty hard.”
