Last night I worked at the Alliant Energy PowerHouse. I want to make a joke about it, but I can’t because it’s one of the nicest places I’ve been booked. They got me a room at the Hilton that’s attached to the venue. That’s the first time I’ve ever gotten my room paid for as part of the deal.
A guy came out in a purple suit with lightning bolts on it called Powerhouse and did a bit with some of the guys on the show. Does Alliant Energy sponsor a wrestler? Seems impossible. But the outfit fit the guy perfectly. Did they make the outfit and just hope it would fit one of the guys? Is it a mascot that just looks like a wrestler? I have so many questions about Powerhouse.
In the arena, I saw they had retired the jersey of an indoor football player. I wonder what that feels like. Pride tinged with regret because you were really good at the worst level of what you did? Or is it just happiness that you achieved something? Or is it a pure slap in the face?
The professor put me in contact with a guy who collects Bessie Love memorabilia. He says that he has old letters and a bunch of stuff of hers. I’m working a show in that general area in a couple weeks so I’m going to go check it out. I doubt I’ll find anything but there’s no harm in looking.
Aside from the possibility that the guy is a psycho and he hacks me to bits.
