Lance Armstrong is coming to Little Rock, possibly to hang out with Alex Rodriguez

Lance Armstrong, famous drug abuser, will be in Little Rock tomorrow to ride in the Gran Fondo, according to his Twitter feed. It's too late to ride with him, but you can and should attend POP on Main at noon on Main Street between Markham and Second streets. Chefs Matt Bell of South on Main, Tomas Bohm of The Pantry, Donnie Ferneau of Good Food, Travis McConnell of Butcher & Public and Arturo Solis of le klaxon noir will be serving up fancy food and Diamond Bear will be pouring delicious beer. It's $35 for adults and $10 for children 6-12. The Arkansas Times is a sponsor.

Speaking of famous drug abusers, Fox 16 apparently has reason to think that Alex Rodriguez is in town. The Democrat-Gazette reported last month (paywall) that Rodriguez and Karl Malone were in talks with Steve Landers about forming an auto group. 

The stars are aligning, y'all. If you're a fan of the "once greatest athletes in their sports to be undone by doping scandals" or would enjoy heckling them, there's gotta be a 2 percent chance they'll end up at Midtown with the Mailman and the Landers crew. More heckling material of the downright despicable and kids-appear-in-the-darndest-movies (in case Steve Landers Jr. shows up) varieties.

  • Trump sets record attendance at Barton? Let's go to the tape.

    Prior to the appearance of Donald Trump last night in Little Rock after a nearly two-hour delay, Barton Coliseum general manager Ralph Shoptaw came before the crowd to say that attendance for the Trump event, at 11,500, had broken a record at Barton set all the way back in 1974 during a show by the blues-rock band ZZ Top. Trump would later brag on the turnout from the stage, bumping the number up to 12,000 while saying he'd been setting similar records all over the country.  Photos and video from the event, however, would seem to tell a different story.
