I have lived in the neighborhood just west of the stadium for 8 years, I went to get my mail today and realized that all of our furniture on our front porch had been stolen including our door mat. We rarely use our front door so I did not notice it on Sunday (probably because I was sleeping my hangover off on the couch all day), sometime between 2 am and 7 am. Sparty fan grabbed my wicker couch, chair, table, pumpkin, door mat and a flower pot off my porch. I am assuming my stuff is queued up to be burned in East Lansing as I type this but still can not believe it happened. I guess when I replace it I will add some attractive metal chains to prevent this from happening again. Thanks Sparty, you stay classy.
Sparty stole my furniture
Suggestion: get a physical description of the juggalos from Brian.
I'm sorry, how do you know it was Sparty that did it? Just no. Stop it.
And just so went missing the weekend after state beats us and all of the bros are here.
I think it's a pretty fair assumption
+1 Very true.
-1 Taking Sides
*1 for pointing that out.
^1 for staying with the norm
1! just because.
√1 for the new maths
~1 more post needed to wrap this sh** up.
Not to defend Sparty, but we often had stuff stolen from the front of our house on Elm St., and I doubt the thiefs were students from rival schools.
It could have been anybody that stole it, I just thought it might be humorous if I blamed sparty, I am just pissed that it happened. Sparty or not I should be able to live close to the stadium and not worry about my personal property. After 8 years of being here this is the first instance of anything negative happening so I am going to blame sparty. I love where I live and would never move because I would not trade the 6-7 days we play at home, it just sucks that I have to deal with stuff like this. And who takes a door mat, that has to be sparty. Go Blue!
Take comfort in the fact that your furniture will go to the chronically unemployed.
Maybe it was the city? Isn't porch furniture on the verge of becoming illegal?
I'm no constitutional scholar, but I'm pretty sure the city can't take personal property located on your porch because it's on the "verge of becoming illegal."
If I remember correctly, they just passed a porch couch ban.
Boy, am I glad I got all of my porch-couch drinking done before they passed this one.
even if it were illegal, they couldn't just take it. It's illegal for you to be parked in a handicapped spot, but if you still decide to park there, you won't come back and find out they took your car, right? They just slap a hefty ticket down. Punishment has to fit the crime.
Also, 4th Amendment, and search and seizure without warrants and all that. Constitutional scholar ftw.
Actually, they can tow it, but they don't get to keep it and burn it on Grand River...
you've seen them all. Douches.
Don't make me defend tila tequila now.
Juggalo Shores from the banks of the Red Cedar
Sparty drove to Ann Arbor with a U-Haul truck?
They stoled a Uhaul truck from AA to haul the furniture they stoled from the porch back to Yeast Yamswing, so they could burn it all together....
sparty stole the keg tap from my party
Why on earth would they want... Oh, I get it. Never mind.
We stole sparty's dignity
you cant steal something that was never theirs to begin with
Never seen South U as trashed as it was Saturday night. State fans are some of the worst human beings on the planet.
The parking lot at Pioneer was epically trashed as well.
Don't call me Sparty asshole
is a bit redundant.
my Precious Moments figurines from my hope chest this weekend.
Why a 29 year-old man has...er, had...Precious Moments figurines is an entirely different discussion.
Do wicker couches burn easier?
They are made out of wicker, which is like straw. I imagine a wicker chair would go up in flames like a Roman candle.
I am sorry about your furniture, but your title made me laugh uncontrollably for about a minute. And this is no laughing matter.
Now it is a laughing matter -- should've said slightly charred ...
I am in tears. The Mods have a sense of humor.
Created a few min ago. I call shenannigans on this. But funny, nonetheless!!!!!

Although, this seems like a funny thing to do. If taken seriously, I wouldn't want the cops investigating alleged sale of stolen goods.
The mods are ON tonight!
Tell me you just posted that. That is amazing if it is authentic.
Not $6731? They must be counting a victory next year...the nerve
Is the word "STAEE" spraypainted on any of the items?
Geaux Blue, you're a mgopoint whore in the best possible way.
I am relatively new to the Board. Saw the juggalos reference in Brian's post and again here. Could someone please explain the background for this term. Thanks
I think ICP fans would have a right to be pissed at being associated with MSU. And, while their, uh, "methods" might leave a little to be desired, they were right on about Tila Tequila.
The clips of this incident on CNN were actually funny, knowing that no animals were hurt in filming.
Hide your kids, hide your wife, hide your furniture... because sparty is stealing everything up in this bitch.
spending more on your patio furniture than Sparty makes in a year. Nothing like rubbing it in!
And you wonder why he/she steals your stuff? Did you not think when you ordered pizza to be delivered that there might be issues?
Damn dude - THINK!!!!!
Why would a doormat steal a doormat? I wish I could end it there, but it just isn't relevant anymore.
they're trying to end porch couches and the like, right? This was just your friendly neighborhood bum who decided he'd better take his favorite bedroom set WITH him in case it disappeared.
You have lived there for 8 years?
Sparty didn't steal your furniture. You're probably sitting on it right now. Everyone needs to drop the "I hate sparty" shit. The game is over and us fans should be looking forward not backwards! It's IOWA week not MSU week.
We are 5-1 not 1-5 GO BLUE!!
made me laugh. Well done. +1 for a good laugh after last Saturday.
Please follow up next week with: Sparty stole my X Box.
