Kentucky-bound Karl Slezak seems to think that this sweet power bike is going to help him out while walking the cross country or something and, sure, the bike is nice and all, but look at this photograph and let’s talk about that shirt please. As a Canadian, Karl is making a powerful statement of national pride by donning a tarp (that’s hockey slang for ‘shirt’ — an appropriate Canadian reference) with the national band of Canada on it. That’s what Nickelback is right — the national band of Canada? Such a display of national pride must clearly be meant for the jog strip on Wednesday and it’s really making me want to chug some Grade A Very Dark maple syrup right now.
Karl, if you’re reading this, I can all but guarantee that you’ll clinch the coveted Golden Chinch Award for unparalleled style if this shirt is a part of your trot-up outfit on Wednesday. Please. Humor us.
While we’re on the subject of Nickelback, look at this … graph! Sorry, actually, it’s the graphs (and much more!) in our first-ever EN Ultimate Form Guide to Kentucky, which will be available as a download for a small fee, that we want you to look at. We’re also launching the LRK3DE Daily Digest (click here to sign up – it’s free!), a daily email sent out early each morning during competition full of coverage links, predictions, giveaways/contests, and more. Finally, it’s a great time to become an EN Patreon supporter – we’ll be doing some exclusive content in our private Facebook group just for Patrons all week long.
