Holy Week Showdown!

Players, Wednesday is upon us. And if you remember your religious education you’ll recall that famous decree “Keep open the day of the hump, for it is the day of the trivia.” 

And now I know you can quickly turn to me and say but what of you, Wisconsin’s Hardest Greggers? Where have you been this holy week? 

I have to be honest with you, players. I was on a possible Trivia Expansion recon mission that took me to a sad, uncomfortable place. If you’re one who is into bicycles, like me, you know all the North American buzz is about Northwest Arkansas. So, I said to myself consider this, WHT-NWA. And that’s really where it all went wrong. 

What I say going forward, I say knowing we have at least one player from Arkansas. I love that player, I think they’re great and they even took the time to explain several times, “I will never go back to Arkansas.” Yet, there I was loading up the WHT Ineos Grenadier and driving south. 

The Ozarks are pretty great. With reservations, I suggest everyone check out that zone. I’m sure it’s fun as hell to rip bikes through those hills. But crossing into Arkansas comes with weight. The first community I rolled through, Alpena, seems like a 3 block flea market selling confederate battle flags and a shitty liquor store on the edge of town. From that point on there was never not a very tall truck driving like three feet behind me, regardless of my speed, at all times. 

Then I arrived in Fayetteville, which is reportedly like a Madison of the south. I was thinking “Damn, doggie, I live in a, if not the, Madison, this place might be alright.” But it’s not. I’m pretty sure Trump is still president there and all stimulus checks are going to make trucks higher and louder. Three quarters of the city’s property value is tied up in insanely large, tax-exempt, sorority and fraternity houses so there is no municipal budget to put curb cuts on any of the sidewalks. And everything is closed on Sunday. 

All this to say, there will be no WHT-NWA. But there will be one brutal Arkansas category tonight, so brace yourselves. If you want to get in on it, the registration process is easy-peasy.
