    Once again The Fever enters a contest he has no chance to win. He just needs to see his name in print and gets a free meal for him in a doggy box.

    Lefevre won the Las Vegas area pancake bowl with a total of 45 in the 20 minute contest after being the top qualifier with 52 coming in. Miki Sudo ate 50 while eating a casual breakfast with the Lefevres but never had any intention of being in the pancake bowl. Had she participated and given her all, she would have probably put up Molly like numbers.

    Miki Sudo in Las Vegas with the Fevers, I guess the Fever is taking up a new cause. Good job Miki. I just wonder if you ever lost to the Fever in your pro career.Lts have the stats on that one please.

    Why would I need a doggie bag when I have all the free pancakes I need for a year and a $500 gift certificate from IHOP for winning the greater Las Vegas area Pancake Bowl. Sorry to be the one to pass along the bad news, Brian, but I ate 45 to win (after being the top qualifier with 52). That’s more than your pathetic self could eat in a week.

    Stop making accusations by referring to people by name Rich when your better half (age wise) just might be the one calling you out . Think about it I doubt Brian ever referred to you as “FEVER”

    Miki’s not even in America right now. I don’t think she was ever planning on doing the finals.

    It is refreshing to see Rich LeFevre comment as himself. He doesn’t back away, states his opinions, we learn something. Other comments are rotten. Too bad a few people attack anyone who achieves almost anything in CE. They want attention for themselves but do so by spreading hate and gossip and get out their anger and jealousy for the moment. It never lasts, they go on to the next person, event, etc. Hats off to Rich LeFevre and Carlene who set the standards long long ago. Look up their achievements. They are legends.

    Thank you for your above comment. I don’t like these personal attacks made against other eaters and wish OJ only include comments that pertain directly to ce events. Personal attacks should not be left on the site as they sevre no valid purpose and just give haters and bitter people a venue to spew their hatred. I believe in freedom of speech, but harmful and off topic comments have no business on an eating website. What made this site great in the first place was great coverage of eating events. It’s too bad a few rotten apples are trying to bring it down.

    Rich LeFevre makes a good point. Why do you allow this nonsense by 5:44. What purpose does it serve? You are the person who encourages this nonsense by allowing the comment. What is your real agenda?

    Just to show you he’s not the saint you made him out to be. But you guy’s made him to be the official senior spokesman for all pro eating. You idiots continually bash Brian, but never say a bad word about Lafever.

    Rich inviting miki and Toro to dinner or lunch and not inviting Ron Koch is the same as mle asking conti Booker and all eaters that reside in ny to appear on morning shows and deliberately not inviting Seiken. Same approach

    Far from the same approach. People like Ron Koch.

    Ron they bash Brian but they would never ever have the balls to repeat any of the nasty shit they post here to his face and they have had many golden opportunities but remained silent. Wise choice on their end

    Most of the posts that are pro Lafevre come from his wife.
