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.
