Dead chipmunks portray Michigan State’s miracle football win
LANSING, Mich. (AP) Touchdown! Chipmunks?
A Lansing taxidermist is honoring Michigan State’s stunning football victory over Michigan with dead, stuffed chipmunks portraying players on the final play.
Jalen Watts-Jackson returned a fumble for a touchdown on Oct. 17. Nick Saade (SAAH’-day) has a stuffed chipmunk wearing a Spartan helmet and crossing the goal line with a football.
Chipmunks with Michigan helmets are in pursuit. A referee chipmunk has its arms raised to signal a touchdown.
Saade tells the Lansing State Journal (http://on.lsj.com/1jS90G9 ) that the chipmunks were trapped by friends as nuisance animals.
The display includes a scoreboard. It’s for sale for $1,500.
