While there have always been several Sasquatch sightings in the past, I first encountered Bigfoot while on special assignment with the OSI in the fall of 1976. It was a tumultuous time for all of us with the aliens, experimentation in cyborg technology and the cold war. I’ll be honest, it wasn’t easy breaking down the barriers that Sas built up around him, but it was worth it in the end. When I found myself in a pinch, I knew I could count on him.
In the 80’s, Sas showed a strong desire to blend in. He would regularly shave his body and venture out. He loved rock and would travel across country to catch some of his favorite bands.
Thanks for the rise of the X-Files in the 90’s, Sas had to go back underground. Every freak with a video camera was out to ‘expose’ him. We fell out of touch after that. I blame the rise of super smart snakes on this. What most people don’t know is that sasquatch are the sworn enemy of snakes and spend much of their time hunting down and stopping reptillian world domination plans and hit squads.
I don’t know if what these guys found in Georgia is really Sas or not, but I want to believe not. He recently sent me an IM talking about starting up a facebook account and getting excited about some new MMORPGs coming out. All I know is that if anyone ever needed a boulder thrown across a valley, they could count on Sas. It will be a sad, sad world if that was no longer true.
