The Wrestlers of Arab, Alabama
But if you scroll down a few pages, you'll find that Arab (pronounced Ay-rab) is a town in Alabama, about 30 miles south of Huntsville. It was named by mistake: the Postal Service misread the name "Arad," after Arad Thompson, the town's first postmaster.
There are very few ethnic minorities in town, and no mosques. Other than its unique name, Ay-Rab seems like any other small town in Alabama, with a Hog Jaw Road and a Fry Gap Road, a lot of Baptist churches, a lot of burger places, and a Dollar General Store.
Arab High School is very proud of its Knights (that's a scimitar on the wrestling team's singlets). I like the guy on the right with the suspicious expression.
There are a lot of wrestlers in Arab.
Not many boys on the swim team, though. They must think it is a female-coded sport.
I'm pretty sure that's the same swimmer, but this time he's posing with a friend.
Better, but I'm still kind of leery. I guess all of the cute guys move to Huntsville after high school.
Or to West Hollywood.
