    C’mon, Nate. Those are not accurate counts. Miki had 30.75 and I (James Ramsey) had 30.

    I was disappointed with this contest, because they recounted everybody’s cobs three times, taking less and less deductions each time. I was told by my judge that I actually won, because they initially were taking 15+ cobs from other people’s totals. I was told mine were by far the cleanest and I had no deductions. Funny, because I was worried mine maybe weren’t clean enough. Oh, well. There’s always next year.

    Crazy Legs Conti is a dead ringer for poker legend Steve O Dwyer

    You also had a bunch of pieces of corn on the table in front of you that no one saw.

    I will post a picture when I can.

    It is way too hard to judge corn on the cob. The judging took half an hour. They obviously favor the well known eaters. I respect all of those guys, but still there needs to be a better system if they want to continue to have this event. James did have clean cobs, but he also had a lot of corn on the table in front of him.
