So if you go to the website of the weekly newspaper in Pelican Rapids you'll find a great photo under this headline: "Special guest, former NFL football pro Randy Moss attends Pelican Rapids High School graduation."

The web site isn't spilling all the details. You'll have to get next week's print edition for those.

The quick version is that early in his career Moss met Kassi Spier at an autograph session at training camp in Mankato. The two stayed in touch and Moss made a promise to attend her high school graduation in the city of 2,500 people about an hour from Fargo.

Spier has seen more tough times than anyone, especially a young person, should have to face, according to this story by Hayden Goethe of the Fargo Forum.

And Sean Jensen, the former Vikings beat writer for the St. Paul newspaper, provides some cool details about the friendship between Kassi and Moss in this blog post.

Enjoy.
