Photos: American Ninja Warrior tryouts in Civic Center Park
If you've been wondering what the hell's going on in Civic Center Park, we have three words for you: American Ninja Warrior. Tryouts for the NBC competition show, making its Denver return, got underway last night around 8 p.m. and weren't scheduled to conclude until 5 a.m.! During that span, more than 100 people reportedly challenged themselves on an obstacle course in an attempt to qualify for the program, which awards $500,000 to the winner.
