Wing Bowl III

15 years ago Philly got sick of the Eagles not making it to the playoffs, so in order to create excitement in Philly around the Super Bowl they started the Wing Bowl. A bunch of fat guys eat as many wings as possible in a short amount of time. It's disgusting. Last year's winner ate 173 wings. The have to qualify by eating other disgusting stuff. Such as 3 pounds of baked beans in 1 minute, a 2 foot hoagie in 5 minutes, or 100 shrimp in 5 minutes. The tickets all go to charity and they sell all 20,000 of them in about 10 minutes.

My work started it's own Wing Bowl 3 years ago. It was this morning at 11:30. The contestants only eat 10 wing (hot) as fast as they can. Two guys tied at 1 minutes and 5 seconds. Pretty impressive. They had a Wing-off with 4 more wings and the same muther-fer has now won 3 years in a row. Total Wing Bowl whore he is.

pix - I just watch. That would be like David taking on Goliah with no slingshot

ja - no, it wasn't me. I wish.

tf - nah, not me. I'd be much more glorified if it were me.

leezer - no, just stinks up the bathroom

ss - well, the whole 1st floor stinks like hot sauce. I try to avoid the other smells.

But, the really good news is that in some places people are starving to death and we're definitely not letting food go to waste!
