AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) β€” Want to get away, Boss?

Bruce Springsteen bellowed “Hello, Ohio!” to his fans at the Palace of Auburn Hills. That’s in Michigan.

The 60-year-old rock legend referred to the neighboring state several times Friday night until E Street Band guitarist Steve Van Zandt whispered in his ear.

A visibly embarrassed Springsteen grinned and said such a mistake was “every front man’s nightmare.”

Springsteen then donned a scarlet Ohio State football jersey and led the E Street Band through an improptu version of “Buckeye Battle Cry.”

“Are you guys even going to a bowl game this year?” he asked the crowd.

A few paragraphs of this story are true. A few are not, but it would be really cool if they were. Heh.
