Klipsun Magazine has an article about Erik "The Red" Denmark focusing on his training techniques. He says he incurred a $5,000 credit card bill for competitive eating related travel in 2006 which took five years to pay off.

    I guess he is not too smart…he must have paid a lot of interest on that bill.

    I don’t need a break,  I chose to pay it off that way and spend my money on other things, like trips around the world, a house, furniture, tv’s, cars, lot’s of drugs, strippers, and steroids. I regret nothing. Cost of money, economics, learn it and you will be happy.

    I bet Seiken invested a lot more in travel expenses to IFOCE contest and got shit in return. Maybe a few “nice try” comments thats about it

    Shea brothers make the dough . The rest make nothing except for prize money which of course goes to Joey Sonya Pat Bob and a scant few. Any idiot that shells out big money to travel just so they could say they had fun and rubbed elbows with the greats , has no life whatsoever. It is extremely sad when the names mentioned are considered legends of this world

    ETR, great comeback, would that more people did not make such stupid comments on here but then we would have missed your response. What is, is. The same old records keep getting played, they are very played out, and it is just a few people who spoil things for everyone. We know who they are, let’s call them all sour grapes. You know what you are signing up for or not, stop whining, it is so old. Sad? Look in the mirror.

    Anyone who comes to this site for anything except where they can make a fast buck is sad, but saddest of all is the creep who has to spend all day posting anonymous comments about himself.That’s the most pathetic thing I’ve ever seen.

    Really OJ, are you so democratic that you allow Gavonne to comment in such gross ways, and often Seiken’s comments should be disallowed as well. Actually that is an unfair remark in that it is your site, I have said this often about and to BS. Your site, your choice. But my opinion is that many of these comments keep people away and that is too bad considering all of the fine work and time you spend to make this “the” place to come for CE news.
