I chose Bacon. Why not? I smell good, I make so many things better, I have an effect on people's hearts, I get heated quickly, I appeal to the masses, I'm simple yet fascinating, and a BLT* wouldn't be the same without me.
I took the photo below between games at the tournament. That's our coach in the middle, flanked by my teammates: Pork Chop, Spam, Rump Roast and Kilbasa. Kilbasa?
Ordering the shirts was not handled under my auspices and thus I take no responsibility for the misspelling of kielbasa, the tasty Polish sausage. I was the team's point guard and three-point threat, but I wish I also had served as the point man on all apparel-related issues. Oh, well.
The Meat Puppets were more ground chuck than filet mignon at the Tampa tourney, managing only a single victory. If we Hoop It Up again in the future, we'll need to beef up our efforts.
