As expected, Ironman's "big" announcement was that they've narrowed down the next U.S. venue to four places most Americans never want to visit: Fayetteville (Ark., not N.C.), Tulsa (that's in Oklahoma, which sits on top of Texas), Des Moines (which people only know of because of "Tommy Boy") and Memphis (where they put bbq sauce on pasta and it's fucking gross).
I think these are four of the most underrated cities in America and I would live in any one of them...except Memphis, Des Moines and Tulsa. But as destination races go, these are pretty weak. If Andrew Messick called you today and said he'd put an Ironman in a U.S. city/town of your choosing, where would it be and why?
