Run into some old friends from another group or board? Want to do a little schmoozing, talk over old times? Or just some off topic stuff, then this is the place.

Piggyback Bandit....ummm...WTF?!

Shayegan's antics stretch back to 2008 and had been mainly confined to Washington and Oregon. But since last fall, he has worked his way east to Montana, North Dakota and Minnesota, leaving a trail of befuddled athletes in his wake.

Shayegan has asked for piggybacks, attempted to pay for piggybacks and just sprung one upon an unsuspecting kid. He favors basketball games, but he also has leapt onto hockey, soccer and football players.

He has pretended to interview athletes for a term paper, acted as a team manager or just tried to blend in with the crowd for a piggyback payoff.

Why he does it is unclear, as is who came up with the "Piggyback Bandit" nickname that now follows him wherever he goes.
What a f'n weirdo. :wtf:

Saw this a few weeks back when he was in Bismarck, ND as i am from the Minot, ND area. Guy is off for sure. Needs some serious mental help. Has an arrest record as well. Not sure why he is even allowed to walk the streets. Last i read he was on a bus back to Seattle. Weird dude.
