Default Yes!!!

I don't know if this has been posted yet, but Bacon is officially Gordon Beckham's nickname, as noted by the guys at B-R.com

Well done. Well done.

Simply Awesome.

I'm going to go ahead and attribute Gordon's massive sophomore slump to this horrendous nickname.

What's the alternative, Gordo? That's just stupid.

Bacon has it's flaws, but I love it. Besides, lots of guys have strange nicknames.

Bacon is a greasy, nasty, fattening food that I despise. So naturally I never cared for the nickname.

But if he likes it, I guess that's all that matters. But DOES he like it?

Is there a need for an alternative?
