This happened in Jersey, but it’s the freakin’ weekend and this story is just … awesome: In a “messin’ with Sasquatch” commercial come alive, 52-year-old Henry Rouwendal went through a “pretty wild ordeal” when a bear knocked him down from behind and made off with his hoagie. Dude was not about to be “sub-dued”, since the sandwich was loaded with salami and all the fixings. He tells the Star-Ledger: “I kicked him three times in the snout and one time in the throat.” Never mind the foot-long — it’s clear Henry Rouwendal is the real hero here.
