State Farm


A Facebook friend posted this a few minutes ago. I hope it's accurate, but a quick google search brings up nothing except stories from two weeks ago about them dropping their sponsorship. So call me skeptical on this until I hear something official.

About a week ago (upon hearing that State Farm was pulling their sponsorship and support from Penn State football) I made a phone call. I told State Farm to send me all my doc. sheets and that I was going with another company. When the lady asked me why I told her that her company was "pulling out on Penn State football and that I was pulling my business from her company". Fast forward to today and I get a phone call from State Farm. The lady proceeds to tell me that because they were inundated with calls like mine their company realized they had made a huge corporate mistake. She said that they did not want to project an image that their company "runs when the going gets tough". So she said State farm realized their mistake and the company has rescinded it's decision to pull their sponsorship and is going to fully support Penn State football! I told her I wanted some documentation as proof and she said that she will be sending it to me. She said she just wanted to reiterate to me that because of my call and many others like it they realized their huge mistake. As the old saying goes "one for the little guy"! WE ARE... PENN STATE!!!!!!
