Piggyback Bandit spotted in North Dakota

    Here's an...odd story. Some 28-year-old chubby dude - who is already banned from high school sporting events in several states - has been seen in the Fargo-Moorhead area and people are searching for him. He goes around jumping on the backs of athletes, asking for piggybacks. Last week he was in Bismarck hopping on the backs of three students.

    On Wednesday, at a college game, he was handing out water to players, until someone recognized him.

    I knew doodah was interested in moving to North Dakota for work, but didn't think he'd move there that fast.

    Sounds like a perfect sports stringer. Determined, demented and probably would work cheap.

    "Man, I just gave your mama a piggy back ride and she weighs TWICE as much as I do!"

  5. Weird story or weirdest story?

    Reports out of Minnesota the guy has been spotted there. He's already been banned from high school events in the state. Wisconsin -- he's on his way to you. If he isn't there already.

    He's like a fat, slow-moving snowstorm making his way East. I expect him to crash the NYC city title game in early March.
  8. And that's where his reign will end, likely in a quick yet violent fashion, as the people in NYC don't take kindly to someone jumping on their backs.

    Anyone notice the hugely libelous oops at the bottom of that story? They switched the piggy-back bandit's name with the local school's activities director.

    And there is a fetish for everything. This proves it.
