2011 Stupor Bowl Alley Cat

Photo: maybe by Jeff Frane?
Noren was all hyped about the Stupor Bowl Alley Cat when I was there. It turned out that his excitement was justified. His buddy, Jeff Frane won on an old Croll (you listening Jonny? On an old Croll! that Erik torched).  I'm old, I don't know these young riders, but there were about 400 of them running the city streets and alleys of Minneapolis in frigid temps, in the biggest "Alley Cat"  in the nation. So, to who ever Jeff is, my hat's off to ya. For at least one year, you are The Man. Be well. (Chad sez "Jeff Frane".)

I have discovered that one cannot Google "Stuper Bowl" because the algorithm assumes you are misspelling Super Bowl.  Maybe when The Stupor Bowl becomes bigger than The Super Bowl, the shoe will be on the other foot.

I do believe my Croll could have been built by Noren.

Do you know what I like some much about this photo? It is a reality that we sometimes take for granted. This is not New York; there are no heavy locked chains on the bicycles.

Yep, I liked that photo too when I saw it.

Everybody likes snow sharks and hot air balloons. It does seem as if there is a blank wall on a building in Minneapolis someone will paint a story on it. I have no explanation for it, other than some strange Scandinavian pent-up emotion that demands release.

Thanks Chad!

It's actually Stupor not "Stuper". That should help you in your Google searching.
