The Game has found its way into the White House.

This week, because of Thanksgiving, reporters at the White House were asked by press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to state what they were thankful for before asking questions at the latest briefing. Somehow, it led to an interesting moment in the Ohio State vs. Michigan rivalry.

Blake Burman of the Fox Business Network, after stating that he is thankful for his wife, parents and family, said that he's thankful his folks sent him to Michigan and not Ohio State.
