“30 Rock”: Jon is c’est bon

Sayreville, N.J., son Jon Bon Jovi recently rocked “30 Rock” – and managed to give a shout-out to a state university, too.

“I have an honorary degree from Monmouth University,” he assured Liz Lemon (Tina Fey) in the above clip.

And it’s not just any honorary degree – it’s an honorary doctorate, which he was awarded back in 2001. According to this article written by my former colleague, Chris Jordan, Jon’s speech was very inspiring for graduates of the West Long Branch college.

“At this very moment, all across the country, thousands of graduates are receiving diplomas, some from schools like Yale, Georgetown and Dartmouth, who may think their piece of paper is more valuable — or their commencement speaker more impressive,” Jon told them during his commencement speech.

“Remember, we’re from Jersey. We’ve been underdogs all of our lives.”

I knew there was a reason I’ve always liked Jon Bon.
