    He only said he’s great at speed contests which he has proven by beating Molly
    This wasn’t a speed contest.

    Manny is a solid eater, as most of the muscle heads are. They are used to the dedication and self abuse/denial it takes to master long contests. I have no will or desire to train for this. I am a natural “talent”.

    I know this is self serving, but short contests are better. More watchable. It gets boring watching someone eat. Especially with millennials real short attention span. With a set amount of food, you have a better idea of whose winning too. You can visually see it, without counters.

    The only good reason to watch a marathon instead of the 100 Meter dash is perceived value, to a sponsor.

    Congrats Manny! Hopefully, I can take that title back sometime. Btw, most of you know, reporters often get things wrong. Sorry if I sound like Moses here, but I had 19. If anyone considers any of this excuses, so be it.

    Love how Boobchetti always has an excuse for everything. I’d rather be a “muscle head” than a zip code.
