Sometimes things in life retire at just the right time and they stay that way. Like the Taco Bell, Bell Beefer sandwich. Many of you have probably never experienced a Bell Beefer sandwich. Just think of those sloppy joe sandwiches that the hair net wearing lunch lady slapped on your tray back in high school next to those oh so tantalizing grayish green beans and fruit cocktail jello mold squares. The Bell Beefer was basically just like that except it was made with Taco Bell’s special fake mexican seasoned ground meat and it was just oozing with bright reflective vest colored orange grease. It was probably the perfect hangover food back in the late 80s but the only drinking I was doing back then was with my cousins-sneaking from the glasses and bottles left on the table at family barbeques. Those things were tasty as a kid but after experiencing real Mexican food later on in life, I’d like to see those things remain a memory. There’s a cult following for those slop sandwiches though and some people have even made websites and facebook groups dedicated to bringing back the bell beefer.
Fighters have a sort of timeline too, at some point it becomes apparent you just don’t want to see a guy fight anymore. You want him to hang up the gloves and sit back and relax and go out with glory. Is Chuck Liddell one of those fighters? I’m not sure. Chuck definitely still seems to have some fight left in him so maybe unlike the bell beefer-he can come out of retirement. Ariel Helwani talked to him last night and Chuck seems open to the idea of coming out of retirement, but only for a title shot.
