Oh man! I love where I live. Being a Yooper is unique and the outdoors are awesome. But whenever a Yooper is in the news lately it seems like it’s for something outrageous. Or just pure stupidity. And that’s where we are at today.
During the division 3 boys basketball state championship at the Breslin Center between Iron Mountain and Flint Beecher. A man from Iron Mountain, Michigan was warned multiple times to pull his mask up and wear it correctly. He decided that he didn’t want to do that.
He kept being told to pull his mask up or else he’d end up being kicked out. Well that Yooper decided to throw a fit over having to pull his mask up and decided to throw his popcorn all over the place when he was told he had to leave. What a look for the Upper Peninsula. He literally threw a temper tantrum like a young child would.
I mean how hard is it to wear a mask for two hours?
Imagine coming all the way down from Iron Mountain…..then getting kicked out because you won’t wear a mask for two hours.— Tony Daggett (@TonyDaggett_IAF) April 10, 2021
He was told by MSU police that you have to pull your mask up multiple times as we are still in a pandemic and Michigan is a hot spot right now and decided not to listen. Now this image of him being removed is being talked about everywhere. Way to make the U.P look dumb.

I’m sure someone reading this will say “he was just standing up for what’s right” and if you’re saying that, what’s right is protecting everyone the best they can. Michigan is a hot spot, he was warned and decided to throw a hissy fit.
Everyone wants to have all high school sports back – but people like this will ruin it for everyone.
Twitter has some strong words for him:
But don’t worry, I’m sure he totally backs the blue and respects cops.— David Bodine (@dbodine3) April 10, 2021
The poor wittle baby can’t wear his mask and had a big temper tantrum. Sounds like he just needs a nap and a warm bottle.— Sharty, played out. (@DisrspktdSharty) April 10, 2021
I see the "voluntary" Covid mitigation efforts are working beautifully.@MHSAA is still selling tickets to high school basketball games.— Mitchell Robinson (@mrobmused) April 10, 2021
Nimrods like this doofus are refusing to wear masks properly.
Oh yeah… Iron Mountain lost.
