Pullman Police attempting to locate legendary Popcorn Guy
PULLMAN, Wash. — Pullman Police are attempting to locate the mysterious WSU Popcorn Guy. The Cougar fan legend’s presence is much needed on Saturday as the world of college football will be watching Pullman.
Popcorn Guy rose to fame in 2013, at a miserable game for the Cougs in Seattle. He was caught by ESPN’s cameras dumping popcorn on his face as it poured rain and Stanford beat up on the Cougs at CenturyLink Field.
Most fans had left, but Popcorn Guy remained. WSU lost the game 55-17.
Now, ESPN’s College Gameday is heading to Cougar country for the national pregame show Saturday morning before the Cougs take on the Oregon Ducks at Martin Stadium. Pullman Police, and many others, feel Popcorn Guy must be in attendance.
His real name remains unknown. Pullman Police and the ESPN Gameday staff are seeking to identify and locate him ahead of the big day.
Years later, @CollegeGameDay solicits the help of an incredibly skilled police agency to help track down #WSUPopcornGuy, because they simply can’t bring the big show back to #ThePromisedLand without his help. #PullmanProud #GameDayPullman #GoCougs #AttemptToLocate #JustForFun pic.twitter.com/LVj9vgWBXm

Don’t worry, the Attempt to Locate poster is just for fun. Pullman Police note, “Aside from stealing the show, this subject has not committed any crime.”
