The one thing about Wyoming is, we stand by our people (at least in the sports world).
It’s well-known how Wyoming feels about Buffalo Bills quarterback — and former UW QB — Josh Allen.
But the support shown toward UW alum and now Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Logan Wilson is unmistakable.
Wyoming is bleeding orange this weekend which isn’t uncommon as many are already Broncos’ fans.
But this weekend, Wyoming’s orange has a Bengals shade to it.
On Sunday morning, Wyoming Governor Mark Gordon let the public know that he’s all behind Logan and Cincinnati.
“From the Mustangs to the Cowboys and now the Bengals. Good Luck to Wyoming native Logan Wilson and his Cincinnati teammates today in Super Bowl LVI,” Gordon said on his Facebook page.
To complement the sentiments, he also posted a photo of the two grinning together.
Gordon doesn’t fare too badly in the photo either. He’s not dwarfed. That’s not to say Gordon could join him on the field but he looks pretty good for being more than twice Wilson’s age.
He also posted a montage of photos showing Wilson as a player for Casper, the University of Wyoming, and the Cincinnati Bengals.
The governor’s post is performing quite well with over 500 likes in under an hour.
Perhaps Gordon could ask Logan to join him when discussing the budget on Monday.
All of us at Cowboy State Daily wish Logan Wilson the best of luck.
