Bear with us while we catch our breath. It’s been a wild week for news around here. Kidding, of course.
Fayetteville holiday tunnels are always long and quiet (and possibly dangerous if you’re a newspaper machine). Fortunately, there’s light ahead which means we’re almost out of this thing.
A few other Arkansas towns picked up the slack in terms of holiday news.
The latter two pieces of news put Arkansas in the running for The Daily Show’s annual Leading Exporter of Absolute Batsh*t Insanity award. Fair enough.
Like it or not, sports will dominate the evening. Razorback sports, that is. By our estimates, 92% of Arkansas fans will be watching the football Hogs take on Ohio State in the Sugar Bowl, 6% will be watching the basketball Hogs take on Texas on ESPNU, and the remaining weirdos will have two televisions set up in their living room so they can watch both (don’t ask us how we know this).
For those who refuse to call the Hogs, you’re not exactly on your own. There’s a great show on Mt. Sequoyah with Still on the Hill‘s Kelly Mulhollan, jazz at Teatro Scarpino and an artist’s reception at Ozark Natural Foods.
