FELDY: If you've followed Faceoff at all, you know how much Phersy and I love our stupid criminals. And this one is pretty, well, stupid. And funny. And, unlike a lot of our stupid criminals, this one actually has a sports angle to it.
As you'll see when you link to the article, Sherwin Shayegan doesn't look like such a bad dude <sarcasm is on>. He sure looks like a 27-year-old who just likes to hang out and watch some Oregon high school basketball.
The problem is, Sherwin also likes to enter locker rooms, ask for autographs and pictures. That's just the beginning of the creepiness. See, Sherwin is fond of asking teenage basketball players not only to sign his program and take a quick snapshot. Nope, not enough for Sherwin. He also enjoys asking players for piggyback rides.
That's right, Sherwin is a piggybackaholic, apparently.
Sherwin's actions have promted the Oregon State Activities Association to send a memo to all schools in Oregon warning them about Sherwin. They've also filed a trespass letter that prevents Sherwin from attending any OSAA-run tournaments.
So far, the story says, Sherwin has only approached male athletes and hasn't "made any overtly sexual moves."
The worst part of all of this is now Phersy's going to have to quit asking the Ice Hawks players for piggyback rides to his car after games.
