As it turns out, you can go home again. At least that’s what actor Eric Stonestreet did for Thanksgiving.

On Saturday, he watched his alma mater in the Sunflower Showdown in Manhattan, Kan. The Wildcats won and Stonestreet, who is best known for his work on “Modern Family,” wasn’t content to merely cheer. He joined the band for a short while.
