"I've talked to Johnny a few times at Breslin Center when I worked there. He was nice and wasn't creepy. He told me he was the 3rd generation Johnny Spirit. He also has a graduate degree from MSU. I was working the ceremony when he received his degree. It was weird seeing him out of costume and character."
I know he was from the Spring Lake area and another poster said his mother owned Gretchen's Kitchen located in Spring Lake.
Snowy January about about15 years ago drove to a Friday Spartan hockey game. Breslin had some concert and parking was at a minimum. Had to park by the International Center and as we were walking in 15 degrees with snow we heard a bicycle bell. It was Johnny Spirit riding to Munn sans jacket or long pants. He lives his schtick.
Why is he camping out in front of sparty right now? (apparently for spartys 66th)
Btw its weird not seeing him in full paint and without

insufferable attention whore.
just reminding folks.
Knibb High football rules
Is that so people don't think he's crazy?
How long has he been doing it? 20 years?
Wolves that exclusively fed on wolverines.
He reincarnates, same as The Doctor.
His father was Ernie the Can Man. Ernie left him a sizable amount of returnables when he died, and Johnny has been living off that for the last several years.

He did that for a bit, and still might occasionally. But, he still does have his body painted. Saw him at a game this year (I forget which) and it was pretty warm. He was sweating profusely, and drops of green sweat were dripping off him as he made his way up and down the aisles. It was pretty gross.
He is known liar. I have to do some searching, but there have been articles written in the State Journal and the State News that point out that he gets no money from the University for his trips although he has said he does, his mother used to paint him up for game day (and seemed to be highly embarrassed of this fact), he is NOT a third generation Johnny Spirit, and he is a known creeper who has hit on and been rejected by numerous females who are in relationships with other men.
I do know he is actively involved in Scouting and was pictured in the MSU Alumni Magazine a few years ago in his scouting garb receiving some sort of scouting award. I believe he is a scout master for a troop in his hometown.
That's even creepier than being Johnny Spirit.
Now that makes more sense!

Where is a hurricane when you need one?
Don't think -- it can only hurt the ballclub
Still don't understand why everyone has such a problem with JS. Who cares? As long as he's not raping, abducting, or molesting anyone, who is he hurting?
Oh, by the way, somebody needs to tell this guy to get with the times re: the logo.
Call him John Sheldon (his real name). He hates it.
When I was a bartender at Crunchy's I talked to him a few times. Guy is a grade A asshole. I am amazed he is a scout/scout leader because he comes across as a total fuckstain.
I give him props for repping MSU at unaffiliated events........particularly (arguably) the biggest sporting event on the planet. But as far as being a person.............he sucks.
Yeah the S is done Johnny
"If you're worried about Wolverine fans, just move to Pasadena. You'll never have to deal with 'em."
Not the best rep/advertising for our uni, but I respect the effort.
I must be crazy to be in a loony bin like this.
I'm shocked a media outlet hasn't done a profile on the guy. He's largely a mystery.
He's hurting himself. He has issues that need to be addressed by competent psychological/medical professionals.
How do you not see this?
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
FWIW, I've been told he has a "chemical disorder," which isn't a surprise considering his behavior. It might also partially explain his personality issues, too.
Ok, but what difference does that make to any of us. If that's what he wants to do with his life, I don't understand how anyone has the time/energy to worry about it.
If he's a danger to himself, then he's a danger to all of us.
That explains pretty much everything
He sounds like a terrorist.
A man's gotta eat!
