Shep Bryan attended CU Boulder as an undergraduate during the early 1970s. He lived in Boulder during the tumultuous counterculture years of the early 1970s, and he talks about how that culture dovetailed with his own young adult rebellion. During that time, he participated in one of a series of football games that were held during those years that came to be known as The Hairy Bacon Bowl because they matched up young people who were or looked like hippies (hairy) against police officers (“pigs,” in the parlance of the time; hence “bacon”). He reflects on what the culture of the time and the Hairy Bacon Bowl meant to him. He also talks about his life after his CU years, including doing a stint in the Merchant Marine, becoming a born-again Christian, his marriage and family, and his work as both a businessman and a man of faith.
