    I think he is just either hoping or going by last year.

    At first 40 dozen just looked really good, but looking at the other excellent totals by Adrian and Mike, the first place total looks very impressive.

    Corey Fanguy needs to leave MLE if he is letting local eaters beat him.

    How can you say that about Corey? A couple local eaters could probably beat 2/3 of the top 50 in oysters.

    Good to see a competitive eater get front page exposure in a major city paper.

    If Sonya lost she wouldn’t have bothered reporting results on her site

    I was sick that weekend and couldn’t compete in the contest… I have never been defeated by an amateur eater ever in my career… Even though I was listed… if I was well that weekend I would have ate my share of oysters.

    I corey fanguy would have more than likely took third if I wasn’t sick that weekend of the contest… however due to doctors orders I wasn’t able to compete in oysters that weekend… you bet your bottom dollar… 2015…. I will be there to prove that fact… I know I shows a scratch under my name. The truth is is that I was not defeated… I just was not able to compete on that particular weekend.
