While it is not politically correct in my position to root for one sport¹s team over another on NAMWOLF social media, I would like those of you who root for the Oregon Ducks to forgive me in advance.
A big shout out to the Ohio State Buckeyes and Evan Spencer who many of you know plays wide receiver for the Buckeyes. Evan¹s mom, Gilda Spencer, is Senior Vice President and Deputy General Counsel at Allstate. She is also one of our most passionate and active supporters and on the Advisory Council. Gilda is one very proud mom right now especially after Evan played so well in the Ohio State win over Alabama last week. He not only threw a touchdown at the end of the first half that totally changed the momentum of the game but he also made a huge block that led to another Ohio State touchdown and caught an onside kick at the end of the game to seal victory for Gilda¹s favorite college football team. His name was repeatedly called out by the announcers during the game for his excellent play over the course of a very successful four years. Being from Ohio, you would think that I would be a Buckeye fan when in reality I¹m a Michigan fan who has rooted against Ohio State for more years than I can remember. But, when you see Gilda and her beaming proud mother look and you take into consideration how bad Michigan was this year, you gotta root for the Buckeyes and the Big Ten. Next year a different story Gilda.
So on behalf the NAMWOLF team, we are all behind Evan, Ohio State and Gilda. Go Ohio State (but remember Gilda, Jim Harbaugh is coming to Michigan very very soon)
