The BackBlast:

Pre-blast posted on Slack, including Beatdown title here, threat that it would be much worse than can be imagined, and to bring a towel or mat for your tailbone.  It is not lost on YHC that Pincher attempted to poach attendees on the Hard Knocks Slack Channel by advertising his Q @ Winn Dixieland on the same day.
