    Just sayin': Here's a perfect example of why Ohio athletes should chose Ohio State over an out of state school. It opens the door much wider in their pursuit of a career after football. Does anyone think he would have got this opportunity and won with 57% of the vote had he went to Michigan, etc.? Current (as well as future) Ohio high school athletes should take notice.

    Also, with their hair styles, Gonzo's son looks his "mini-me"......:biggrin2:

    With the way his district is drawn, he probably would have only won it with 55% of the vote had he been a michigan grad.

    Former Ohio State, NFL football player joins Congress

    [​IMG]

    The walls of Rep. Anthony Gonzalez’s Capitol Hill office are bare, but Gonzalez knows how he’d like to decorate them: He’d like to post Polaroids of the people who visit from Ohio — faces of the people he now represents.

    What the Ohio House delegation’s newest member won’t do is make it a tribute to his own storied football career, first at St. Ignatius High School in Cleveland, then at Ohio State University, then, finally, for the Indianapolis Colts and the New England Patriots.

    “This is the 16th District’s office, so I want it to reflect that,” he said, saying references to his football career will be “minimal.”

    As of now, the only evidence of that career - the one that may have helped open doors in what was initially expected to be a tight congressional race - is a bobblehead on his chief of staff’s desk of Gonzalez wearing the Colts uniform. “Maybe I’ll put my Ohio State helmet in here,” Gonzalez muses on his first day in office, as family and friends flow in and out, munching on Corner Bakery pastries and sipping coffee as they awaited his swearing-in. “People might like to try it on.”

    Just sayin': It is really great to see former Ohio State football players having a successful career (in somethng other than football). In addition, I'm thinking that it should be a great recruiting tool in demonstrating the value of an education at THE Ohio State University.

    It's been a trend for years for Reps to wear opposite color ties... i dont know why... some kind of 'make them guess which party im in so they listen to my words instead of judging like a religious cult' ?
    But ive noticed this going on for years.
