Publish date:

Cody Christie is best known in Minnesota for writing about about the Minnesota Twins for Twins Daily, often analyzing Nelson Cruz's power, Byron Buxton's speed and Josh Donaldson's defense. 

But his main job is as a teacher at West Fargo High School, which got some national attention this week when he was featured on actor John Krasinski's "Some Good News" (SGN) YouTube series. 

Krasinski, who burst onto the Hollywood scene for his role as Jim Halpert in "The Office," is eight weeks into his YouTube show that was created to bring good news to viewers living in a world that has been swallowed by the doom and gloom of the coronavirus pandemic. 

Christie was recognized by Krasinski for his creation of "SNG West Fargo High School" and was featured in Sunday's episode. He appears most prominently, albeit briefly, at the 6:59 mark of the video as he says "West Fargo High School edition" as part of a montage of people all over the world who have duplicated the SGN idea. 

Christie appears again about 15 seconds later as he says "let's share some good news." 

Christie told Forum News Service that he wasn't told that SFN West Fargo High School would be featured in Krasinksi's show, but if he could say anything to the actor he would "just thank him and tell him that his idea helped us at the end of the year." 

You can watch Christie's version of SGN right here. 

Krasinski's YouTube channel has more than 2 million subscribers, with his latest episode of SGN already exceeding 2.2 million views.
