Denver takesdown bacon. I mean, actually does actually that.

No Denver, it is NOT okay to bodyslam a person with 300lbs of bacon. You would have to be INSANE to think that is a normal thing.  But I guess your average Denverite doesn’t care about what’s done on the outside.  When you get in the Octagon, you lose a part of yourself, and all that is left is a raw animal urge… to party super hard.

Try as I might, I couldn’t tame the unholy beasts of Denver, and they cooked up 20 different genius bacon dishes for Denver fooders to devour… We all sat around and high fived each other about the whole thing… and then guess what happened!!!??  A whole bunch of wrestling Juggalos came in, and tore the whole place down!!!!  That night, they even invented an honorary super-extreme bacon pile driver off the top ropes, using Hormel Black Label to destroy with!!!!

Thanks be to Hormel!  Thanks be to Casselman’s for their perfect space!!! And thanks be to the amazing cooks who offered their most awesome skills that day…
