High School Football Game Moved Due to Toothpicks

A Michigan high school football team was forced to move a big game due to an unlikely culprit: toothpicks.

It seems that some pranksters thought it would be a genius idea to dump thousands of toothpicks on the field sometime before Tawas & Alcona were set to play.

Officials wisely determined that thousands of pointy pieces of wood would not make for a very safe football game and moved the contest 40 miles to Alcona's stadium.

The change didn't hurt Tawas, who won 49-0 and earned a playoff spot.

It is not known who was responsible for the toothpicks, but students from Oscoda, who lost to Tawas 72-0 a few weeks ago, are suspected. Fans and officials from Tawas have since removed the offending toothpicks from the field one-by-one and will celebrate with hors d'oeuvres.

WOW!!!! Pick-UP STICKS!!! I haven't seen those since the early 80's!! I have to give them credit for getting the game moved to their stadium so they could face even more humiliation from the huge loss!! Shaking my head at this one!!
