KM: Are fans continuing to give you standing ovations, even when you're on the road?
RM: It's starting to settle down. I was in Detroit the other night and got a little bit of a reception. But you can never tell whether it's just fans from when I was at MSU.
KM: At some point they need to start booing you so that you feel normal again, right?
RM: It's surreal, but I'm sure there will be a backlash. People will tire of the positivity.
