#Bagsearch2016 Is Back: Andy Dalton Lost His Luggage for the Second Time this Week (Tweets)
Last week, Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton was driving to the airport in Dallas/Forth Worth with his wife when two of their bags flew out of the bed of his truck. So Dalton did what any famous person would do: he asked Twitter to help him find the bags.
If anybody in DFW traveling from 75-635 towards the airport finds 2 black suitcases on the road please contact me. Fell out bed of our truck

Before long #bagsearch2016 was trending nationally, and we had the most asinine (yet entertaining) Twitter event of 2016 on our hands.
Needless to say, many a joke was made at Dalton’s expense.

How about the balls on Andy Dalton to have the whole internet search for his bags and then not give us an update for 6 hours? #bagsearch2016

But a few people took the opportunity to make fun of other NFL quarterbacks.
Can Johnny Manziel do community service and search the highways for Andy Dalton’s bags? #bagsearch2016

Eventually, though, some dude named Robert tweeted this:
I dropped off what may be your bags with Richardson Police this afternoon. Found around 5 am in Richardson https://t.co/9AKDY4gkFr

And that led to this happy reunion:

Amazingly, though, the reunion was short-lived. On Sunday, just five days after #bagsearch2016 first unfolded, Dalton took to Twitter to announce that, thanks to American Airlines, #bagsearch2016 was back:

Unfortunately, just like Zoolander 2, #bagsearch2016 Part 2 wasn’t nearly as good as the original. American got back to Dalton about 20 minutes later.
@andydalton14 We’re sorry for the delay of your bag. Please follow and DM the baggage locator and we’ll be happy to look into this for you.

Still, though, not a great week for Andy Dalton’s luggage.
