    Theres not alot of info on this contest , no announced prize and it was on short notice for an MLE event. I only expect eaters around the new york area to eat. Yasir, Badlands , X , Marcos Owens ect

    I thought there was never prize money for cannoli, one reason some did not want to come to compete.

    3 of the best guys in competitive eating that I’ve had the pleasure to meet so far. Great job Yasir!

    I for one am glad Badlands finally has some company. Even though Yasir and Marcos are bi-racial, 50% black is better than nothing.

    A full blooded Italian has yet to win this contest. We had irish , jews , blacks and half Italians but never a full one . What an outrage

    In the pictures, the Cannoli mascot looks like a giant turd. Huge numbers. They had to be soft shell this year instead of the hard shells we have heard about in the past.

    That mascot really does look like a giant turd.

    I think I just flushed the mascot’s younger sibling.

    Seiken wasn’t asked because too busy writing comments in middle of night 12:08 am, 1:49 am on and on and on stirring up trouble. Gavonne was gone for a long time.

    Try again scumbag stalker who’s name and ip address will be exposed along with a few other’s on my site and this one. . Think im bluffing? It was the best investment I ever made. Go find another hiding place and someone else to stalk . Good luck . Empty threats? We’ll see who gets last laugh.

  21. anonymous said

    September 13, 2013 @ 1:26 pm

    so judging by the results it would be safe to say Seiken wouldn’t be able to get out of the single digits, maybe that’s the real reason why he wasn’t invited.

  22. anonymous said

    September 13, 2013 @ 5:26 pm

    Maybe because the other eaters said that they would only compete if Seiken was not involved. Who wants to deal with all the BS BS at a friendly event.

  23. CNN not BBS said

    September 13, 2013 @ 5:49 pm

    Seiken knew nothing about the canoli contest taking place nor did he have any interest in competing.Does that answer your stupid question?

    1:11 PM Brian,
    Your “investment” will net you zero information. Anyone who is taking your money is scamming you, but more than likely you are once again full of shit, and in need of attention. You should have spent the money renting a friend.

    ha ha ha 1:11 how naive you are. Since your so good in calling bluffs, and losing royally , go play some poker in AC on Yom Kippur . I suggest investing in a proxy identity from now on but unfortunately that is too late

    HAHA – play poker in AC! Get some new lines. All I am going to say is that you are an idiot if you think the comments made during the day are from me. I’m at work dickhead and still own a flip phone with no internet access.

    Nobody said the comments came from you US Male. There are other poker players in CE that go to AC

    Brian Seiken has every right to find out who his attackers are.What about the Sudo smear campaign? That scenario seemed to die out when she started winning and Hank’s name suddenly came up. If you were the victim of slander libelous comments destroying your respect and integrity as an individual, you would want to find out the person or persons making those nasty false accusations. People like to dish it out under an assumed name but when the shoe is on the other foot they cry foul!. How would you like it if someone threw a hardball or rock at your front door every single day and then ran away without finding out who the culprit is? You know so much about Seiken yet he knows very little about you with both hands tied behind his back. That’s like throwing stones at someone while he’s blindfolded.Its ok for you to play dirty? Seiken has a very good idea who the few assholes are but all it takes is one slipup and you got egg on your face just like Lefevre when he dropped the wrong dime. OJ Rifkin is probably responsible for some of the comments because some of his accusations are too precise and sounds like someone that knows exactly where the comments are coming from.

    Thousand dollar reward to anyone who can identify who I am and my location. Seiken will be pulling his hair out (oops too late for that) and foaming at the already stinky mouth his breath is awful, Garonne pointed out that fact very clearly in a video. Seiken always looks Ike a stinky sweaty mess… Yuck

  31. anonymous said

    September 15, 2013 @ 10:13 am

    Yeah but you are still afraid to leave your real name because Seiken will stomp you to the ground and beat you within an inch of your life . Isn’t that the truth you smelly fat coward? Keep your money , IP’ locations were posted here the other night but pussy OJ deleted the post

  32. anonymous said

    September 15, 2013 @ 10:29 am

    OJ Rifkin wants to play dirty and get his little rocks off posting nasty ass lies about Seiken. Well guess what , each and every one of his threads will be hijacked from now until the end of the year . OJ will have a hell of a lot of deleting to do. Better yet OJ why dont you just do like you always do, move the thread to the romper room. Ha

    to those of you that wanna play internet tough guy and dare to be exposed, well get this. Even if you have some bullshit proxy like Belfast NE or Saudi Arabia your real location will be exposed . You can run but you cant hide , No this isnt about kicking some one ass or legal ramifications, its all about being on equal terms so the victim can dish out the same bullshit to the bullshitters that have dished it out , only this time a name will be attached to it Aint life a mutha fuc bitch !

    I did not post any of the above comments.. I myself am being falsely impersonated by a third party.. It has been going on for quite some time.I do not condone or engage in this type of behavior. The horrendous disgusting false comments about me posted on this site are enough to turn one’s stomach

    Brian’s a pretty title liar playing the victim. Sure you didn’t post that stuff. It’s just by coincidence that bb.com has posts on the same days about the same subjects right? Wait, is someone impersonating you on your own web site and posting about Jewish holidays, too?
