    OJ, that is a wonderful gesture, taking the time to post everyone’s video. That really means a lot to each eater, no doubt.

    That’s what (almost) all of us appreciate about you. You constantly give and expect very little, if anything, in return. You are a very unselfish person.

    Many, many people could learn much from you, and through the years, I must say you’ve taught me a thing or three about being professional and objective.

    Thank you, and may you and yours have a wonderful new year!

    Here’s a toast to OJ and also for four terrific comments. The spirit of competitive eating shines brightly. Happy New Year OJ.

    OJ is a piece of garbage and it solely responsible for causing friction between members of the IFOCE and anyone else in CE.

    The 2004 Ben’s Deli Matzo Ball Eating Contest finals predates the 2005 founding of this website's+deli+secessionists&source=bl&ots=I0itAWTDiP&sig=yG7UB0iij3cnJPJvtYcLE8ZNu0o&hl=en#v=onepage&q=%22eat%20this%20book%22%20ben's%20deli%20secessionists&f=false

    12:23: Boy, that will really fix OJ.

    When someone makes a comment like that, it does nothing but shed negative light on its author, who is likely experiencing several or all of the feelings of negativity, self-pity, jealousy, resentment, and learned helplessness. Such a person is often an expert in his own neurosis (mildly put), which I’m fairly certain is the case here..

    Ironically, your comment entices this site’s visitors to view OJ more positively, and you, more negatively, should the latter even be possible. So your quest to harm OJ and others you see as threats to your well-being is not accomplished; it has actually backfired.

    —– I know you’re fuming, but please keep reading. —–

    A way to stop all these negative feelings and feel better about yourself is to accept responsibility for your actions and admit when you’re wrong, to both others and yourself, and give credit where credit is due.

    By taking such actions you’ll set a baseline from which self-improvement can be made. And you’ll actually feel good in the process, which will, in turn, reinforce those positive actions.

    Hell, we’re all human, and we’ve all done things we’re sorry for.

    Rhonda, you’ve once again hit the nail on the head.

    I’m trying to imagine the day-to-day existence of someone who apparently lives to mock, ridicule, and simply post nonsense just to appear somehow relevant to competitive eating. As a perpetual table-ender and brunt of frequent MC introduction jokes on-stage (and backstage), most people would wise up or simply pack it in. At least that’s what most normal, well-adjusted adults would do and have done. Then there’s the pretty disturbing “Oh, you don’t get the joke. I’m being funny – see?” bit. Okay, it’s fine if you’re the only one in the room laughing at your wit. We’ve all been in that awkward situation at one party or another, where you actually feel embarrassed for the self-absorbed “comedian.” At least in those situations, they eventually become aware that no one else is laughing, and if they are, it’s at them.

    Part of the growing up process is recognizing that you are rarely the smartest guy in the room, and try to prove otherwise just makes you look like a boorish imbecile. The other part of growing up is realizing that reacting to perceived Insults the same way you did when you were twelve is never a good idea in middle age. I guess that’s what kind of saddens me a bit here. I don’t get the joke and can’t find anyone else that does. I really want to believe that the author of all this “humor” really does have a productive, semi-normal life away from this blog, but unfortunately that’s hard to imagine from what I read here.

    If this is some kind of a “bit,” then it’s run it’s course long ago.

    Has anyone noticed that comp eaters with a life ignore negative comments relating to Seiken and focus on the topic at hand? The very few that are so bitter and hateful towards the man will pull out all the stops by trying so desperately to go for the juggler.They tried sending letters to Sheacommunications banning him from contest s which never worked. They will come up with stuff like Seiken is the brundt of jokes by Sheas or He just doesn’t get it. Never ends . They cling to anything and I mean anything to try and get his goat while he in turn is probably laughing his ass off realizing they are just adding to his popularity

    Adding to your popularity Mr. Seiken? You are popular for one thing and there is nothing positive about it. You will never truly understand how stupid you make yourself look and it is us who will keep laughing our asses off. I won’t answer myself with an immediate post to this.

    Children. Contribute or shut up. Best to contribute is post your own humorous video and add it to this excellent collection.
