    Isn’t this also the first contest Neslie Ricasa has missed in 3 years?

    Try to keep up. Joey and Neslie are no longer together, as reported here on June 26th.

    Uhhh….Neslie is an eater in her own right. Just because they broke up, doesn’t mean she is not interested anymore.

    I meant Neslie as in a crappy candy bar, shout out to joey’s buds, sorry I could not be with you this know me because i found that bottle of gin on the bus a couple of years ago. You guys are so much fun and bought me a beer in a bag before the contest. I hope joey is okay with moving on. Friend, top women eater, tells me he looks great.

    Joey’s posse. In fact, have Joey give me a call. Love to hear from him. Great guy, I heard he’s s a big fan of Sonya Thomas. What’s that about? Just kidding,. Joey, Badlands, CLC, Jarvis, EaterX, Coondog (God rest his soul), Kobi, the LeFerves, Juliet and Joey, Shoudt, Deep Dish, Boone, Seiken, Furious, Elwingador, Rhonda whomever you are, etc., thanks for the memories. This site, and competitive eating needs a little cleaning up. Bone appetite.

    I meant to say bon apaetite, yet Microsoft keeps correcting me to bone appetite. Yet, eat a bone if you want to be negative against. Competitive eaters seems appropriate.go eat bone.
