    I can’t wait until Joe starts making his usual excuses for why he barely won.

    Let’s hear ‘em, Joe.

    What’s this “barely won” stuff? The man won–by a half minute. Congratulations Joe on winning the 10 Bens!

    Joe Menchetti’s life is CE. He has no real job unless you call ticket scalping a real job. He lives off his wifes income . She is the real breadwinner in the house.

    Syko, long ago when I was married my husband had three working women–his wife (me), his girlfriend, and he was right-handed.

    Um, Rhonda…he beat an amateur by :30. That’s called barely winning.

    But Joe will be here any minute to explain what happened. Right, Joe?

    Thank you to most of you.

    annony, 5/9 2:43 is correct. My goal is to “count de monet”. In that vain, I believe I’m only behind Joey this calender year.

    CE is a part of my life. But, I haven’t recorded several CE related CD’s nor do I demand & threaten others to buy my recordings, visit my site, have a tattoo, abuse others to make my sole living from eating, etc. I don’t even have a personal site anymore.

    Please don’t compare me to Lerman.

    Boone can’t beat me if I ate one handed.

    BTW, I think he is back.

    For those that are unaware, the custard thing was, I dropped about a dozen business cards around the BR Frozen Custard Shop @ like 1am while en route to Andy’s. (it was less than 5 miles out of my way)

    I believe it scared the heck out of Chris “The American” Schlesinger & concerned Ian. They half expected to see me walk through the door until the contest started. Ian said he asked ‘if we were going to wait for Joe’.

    I too have concerns of eating disorders in our activity.

    SyKoBOZO learn from this post… please. One big entry instead of a couple dozen small ones.

    Joe, you lied and cheated to win two of the three contests that account for your winnings. You were SUPPOSED TO BE CANADIAN to wing your dumb wing contest, and you were SUPPOSED TO BE AN AMATEUR to win the Big A bullshit.

    You’re such a great sport.

  25. Gentleman Joe said

    I did NOT lie or cheat for either event you mention.

    The founder of Andy’s (Kenny Moore) & his son Andy were happy to have me & want me back next year.

    Additionally, I did not receive a bye for this event OR for the Canadian Wing event. I drove to NC & to Ontario to qualify. For wings I specifically called to make sure. They too were happy to have me.

    OJ wrongly assumed you needed to be Canadian for wings & nowhere did I see anything amateur related for The Big A challenge.

    If Joey doesn’t consider himself to be a “pro” as i don’t consider myself to be, then who is?? By Kobe’s definition ‘everyone who doesn’t die from it is a pro’.

    I’ll go up against anyone, anytime if &/or when its fun & profitable for me. I’ve never considered it to be a sport, but sports entertainment kinda like wrestling.

    BTW OJ, thanks for posting canadian wings, because this site was my only source for finding it. I may not have known about Andy’s either, so thanks for that one too.
