Battle at the Big Apple Post #2

Here is a new thread about tomorrow’s pizza eating contest at the Big Apple Pizza in Fort Pierce, Florida tomorrow since the previous thread about it has become swamped with political comments.

I have not been able to find any entrants information about the contest. Hall Hunt has posted the press release on his blog, but he does not say whether he will attend.
