Fargo, North Dakota. Home of North Dakota State University, an independent baseball team and a lot of barley.
With all that excitement in the Peace Garden State, it's no surprise that a bunch of rowdy football players just want to unwind with a ton of booze.
After getting liquored up, they all probably decide to pile in a car and drive eight-and-a-half hours to Mount Rushmore. At least, that's what I would do, which is why it's no surprise that a fourth NDSU football player just got arrested for driving under the influence after three of his teammates have done the exact same thing -- and got suspended from the team indefinitely -- in the last four months.
Not that I condone drinking and driving. I just laughed when I saw the Fargo dateline and declared that if I was drunk anywhere in or around North Dakota, I would want to get the hell out, too.
It definitely hurts the Bison to lose a fourth player for the season, as Division I-AA (FCS) teams only receive 63 scholarships. To add insult to injury, two NDSU players were booted from the team last year for possession of marijuana, which further proves my point that there is NOTHING TO DO IN FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA.
According to the Associated Press, all NDSU football players are required to attend a drug and alcohol seminar each semester.
One of my friends once told me that the drug and alcohol seminar at the University of Maryland was so painfully boring that it actually drove him to alcohol to figure out what all of the fuss was about.
