If you've ever been to a big sporting event at MSU, you've probably seen the guy pictured above, Johnny Spirit. Johnny Spirit, aka John Sheldon, has been a spirited fixture at MSU games for a loooooong time now... some say 40+ years, but at the very least since his graduation from MSU in the 90's. That's why this post is so weird to see...

So the question here is, has Johnny truly been banned? It seems like this might all be a bunch of rumors. There was a lot of chit chat about it on the MSU Red Cedar message board, but no substantial evidence. So at this point, it looks like we'll be seeing Johnny at the Western game this Saturday.
