Herald Standard reports that Brad Sciullo ate five pounds of spaghetti in 4:23 at the Italian Festival in Uniontown, PA, breaking a world record of 4:31. The official IFOCE pasta record is 6.67 pounds in 10 minutes by Cookie Jarvis even though Takeru Kobayashi ate 13 pounds in 14 minutes at the 2005 US Open of Competitive eating.

    I think Pete should have gone up against Brad before he threw all his eggs in one basket with Kobayashi. But then again Brad keeps punking out every time Pete puts up the challenge

    I agree. I think the Kobayashi-Pete showdown should have been put off.

    The I.f.O.c.E will do whatever they can do discount any and all efforts by that Japanese guy. He’s old news and irrelevant as far as they’re concerned.

    If memory serves me correctly, the spaghetti event pitted Koby against Jed Donohue. For whatever reason, Jed spent several minutes just eyeing Koby without touching the Spaghetti. Koby responded in kind, and didn’t start eating ubtil 4 or 5 minutes had elapsed.

    Take my word for it, given Koby’s hand speed and increased stomach capacity today, it would take Koby less than half the alloted time of 14 minutes to down 13 lbs of pasta.

    Thank God for Pete that he ate pizza against Koby and not a dense, fast food like pasta, baked beans, grits, or rice, ’cause Koby would have lapped him.

    So I give Pete some credit in that regard.

    Pete’s game is the short game. Pete has near Bertoletti-like speed, but the stomach capacity is lacking—-sort of like a body-builder having a massive, ripped upper body with underdeveloped legs.

    Both Koby and Joey are the complete package.

    4 or 5 minutes is a pretty big exaggeration. Try 30 seconds to 1 minute.

    No, I won’t try 1 minute, because that’s as inaccurate as my overtaxed memory. Either way, the point is made.

    Brad Sciullo is an animal. He will be made rich and famous for eating.
