I had no idea this was national news. I thought this was just a local Philly thing. :rotfl: I have friends that go to this every year. I haven't made it yet, though.

Wow, I don't think I've ever been able to eat more than 8 wings or so in one sitting!

It is technically illegal to "scarf and barf" in the world of competitive eating, but a lot of players do it. Also most players don't normally eat this way. I had a friend do an eating contest once, she could put away food like no other. I think it's just gross to watch these though! Too much food!

Why is it the skinnier men and women always win these things? Amazing!

lol Joey Chestnut, hometown hero of San Jose, CA! He got his start at a taqueria over here called Iguanas; he ate their special burritozilla (5 pound burrito!) in about 4 minutes.

They buffalo wings with a special sauce that has more grease to make them slide easier. I completely forgot the wing bowl was today until I saw it on the news while I was getting ready for work this morning. It's funny how big this competition has gotten in the past several years. Kind of like Punxsutawney Phil on Groundhog Day.

Are they hot wings??? Eating 10 wings in an hour makes me feel about to pop.
