Lucha Libre @ Provo City Hall

There are many ways to desecrate City Hall. Provo has chosen to do it through the semi-secret world of the Mexican Lucha Libre.

Before, when I thought of Lucha Libre, I thought of Jack Black, Jared Hess, and Nacho Libre.





After the luchas (fights) that went down at City Hall the other night, Nacho Libre will now take second place in my thought process when Mexican pro wrestling is mentioned.

The luchas went down as part of Provo's Festival Latinoamericano. It was gloriously trashy, and the moves were farther from believable than normal.














In the last picture, please notice the tattoo of Utah on the underdog's elbow. Way to represent!

Thank you, Provo, for this cultural treat. City Hall will never be the same.

That would be why he is the underdog then. I'm sure if it were a florida tattoo, he would be the winner. And, btw, Nacho Libre is "the best!"

Ha ha...where do you hear about these things? You're so funny. Maybe you should become a fighter...and get a Tennessee or California tattoo on your elbow.

Okay, I've changed my mind...don't become a doctor...become Nacho Libre!

Yes, but were you wearing your Nacho Libre outfit while you watched? I hope nobody stole the orphans chips.

First of all, we need to stop going to the same things so that I have my own original blogging material:) And secondly, I really need to hook it up with the hottie in the second to the last picture. I'm pretty sure that my dad would be so proud. The thing is that my dad would actually really love that, they could wrestle each other...

Did you wear your "stretchy pants" to this event or did you have to borrow some "sweats" from Chancho?
Wow, Provo is quite the place to live eh?
