Chris Spielman is killing COVID-19.

We're living in uncertain times during the COVID-19 outbreak, but Ohio is gonna get through it together – and have some fun along the way.

Chris Spielman continues to make a difference amidst this unprecedented crisis.

The All-American linebacker is on a quest to raise $40,000 to help those affected by the pandemic. He's already raised a sizable portion of that total, but he added another hefty chunk on Tuesday evening, selling his 1986 Big Ten Championship ring for $6,200.

Spielman's also auctioned off his 1984 Big Ten championship ring for $12,000, a game-worn Buffalo Bills jersey for $1,125 as well as his personal 1994 All-Madden Team leather jacket for $2,565, a Detriot Lions jersey and pants set packaged with his 1994 Pro Bowl watch for $2,500, and a game-worn signed Browns jersey and helmet for $1,525.

After all that, he's now just $2,000 shy of his total, and it hasn't even been a month.

Get dumped then. coronavirus.

Yes, both of those humans were on a full-ride scholarship to play the same sport. College sports are fantastic and must be preserved at all costs.

Local Columbus resident Marcia Davis lost both of her jobs as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

But she's found the brightest of bright sides: she now has plenty of time to prep free meals to give away to the elderly, first responders, healthcare professionals and essential workers.

Not all heroes wear capes. And folks, Marcia Davis is a hero.
