Crazy Legs Conti wins Saratoga qualifier

Capital News 9 has an article and video of this afternoon’s Nathan’s qualifier at Saratoga, NY. Crazy Legs Conti won the contest with 21.5 HDB. Jeff Bouyea was second with 10 HDB. Did any reader of this website besides Mike Landrich attempt to register for this contest and not get accepted?

update The Saratogian also has an article about the contest. Tim “Eater X” Janus attended and competed in the neat eating competition, but did not enter the qualifier.

    Congrats on the early start for ’08 Legs. Good thing that Legs showed up because, no disrespect to Mr Bouyea, but it would have been sad if someone qualified for the ’08 finals with 10 HDB’s.

    My brother registered early last week and never heard anything back. He would have been right up there too.

    Good point Erik. What if Legs had reversed? That would’ve been interesting.

    Nice job, CL! Talk about having some time to kick back and relax. You’re in league with Joey as far as preparation time, now 🙂

    That is what I thought also. Didn’t anyone active in the league sign up for it?

    How come the IFOCE didn’t get anyone else to compete in this one. I mean 21 1/2 dogs is a solid total, but it seems like this was a gift entry into the 2008 Nathan’s finals with no other competition to push CL.

    A related question would be, why the IFOCE had a Nathan’s qualifier 10 and a half months before the finals at all. I can’t figure it out.

    My brother registered for this one the day it was posted and i followed up a few days later. Saratoga’s our hometown but we never heard back from the IFOCE. The paper says only 8 people competed. There could have been two more and we both would have been closer to CL than 10

    I thought I was getting paranoid, thinking it was just me that didn’t get in. I think what bothers me most is not even getting a “sorry, you were not selected…….” e-mail. They didn’t even have that decency. Hearing only 8 people competed just adds to the theory that they didn’t want any real competition. Perhaps if I hadn’t doen the qualifier in Vegas last May and was unknown to IFOCE, I could’ve surprised them. You’d think they’d want to put on a real show instead of this half-assed spectacle.

    I forgot to add, let’s see if they pull the same crap with the 2 Buffalo shows on Sep 1 and 2. I’m probably screwing myself by bitching, but I never could stand the taste of freshly kissed ass.

    Mike, until people decide to walk especially the top names in the sport , they will get away with nonsense like this every chance they get. I have zero tolerance for sneaky people

    I just got an e-mail from Kate claiming I was on the list, but no-showed. If only someone had told me……………………………………I would have been there!!

    Nothing like a little damage control from headquarters after the fact.

    Rumors are small truths and large exaggerations. Eatfeats comments are nothing but the untruth and largely speculation. If it is the truth you want, quit reading this.

    Everthing I posted is the truth. Unless your last name really is True, you don’t have the backbone to post under your real name. I post under my real name because I am willing to stand behind anything I post.
