It's good to be an Olympic gold medalist. Ask and you shall receive.
Case in point: American slopestyle snowboarder Sage Kotsenburg, who won the first U.S. gold of the Sochi Games. He tweeted this after winning:
Ahh I wish the Sochi medals were made out of bacon thoooo..!!— sage kotsenburg (@sagekotsenburg) February 10, 2014
A week later, a meat company -- Godshall's Meats of Telford, Pa. -- is making a bacon gold medal. It is turkey bacon, however. Can't have absolutely everything.
"Everything is better with bacon, including international athletic competitions," Godshall's said in a statement, as reported by USA Today. "We're so glad to make his dream a reality."
