    The long ramble by Crazy Legs is more about his joy of getting to the final table. If he did not win in Atlanta there would be no Huff post Vegas report

    Last year Tom Glibert ate 30+ and he’s not aloud to enter. Where was the bull…Double standard in place

    Lefervres are double candidates for assisted living healthcare in the near future Both will be the second husband and wife athletes to be admitted besides Yogi and Carmen Berra

    Who else would make that reference about Yogi and Carmen Berra? Hint: He’s a baseball fan who lives in NYC.

    At least Carlene is not a pretender. She will win the trip to New York

    Seiken had mentioned that one of the Lefevres had horrible breath prior to the watermelon contest in 2004 smelled like when you havent eaten all day. I think it might have been Rich

    Chestnut only showed up because he was confident Matt would not even come close to beating his record

    Where was El Toro? Playing poker cash games in Rio or Bellagio? I think he lost his shirt

    You actually remember what someone mouth smelled like 11yrs ago or is that a quote from his site 11yrs ago?

    I am curious as to what Seiken mouth smelled like prior to the watermelon contest ? Only Subich Carlene and Rich can attest to that . The world is waiting !

    Why do you say noone cares? Important subject because it might have made difference in contest

    All i remember is that there was no prize money after first place $ 1000 Seiken finished third behind rich and carlene but rich was too cheap not to offer seiken a few bucks for his efforts

    El Toro said he was banned from MLE for conduct unbecoming an eater

    why should rich offer seiken for a loosing effort; there is no entitlement in competitive eating; you gotta earn that $$$ obviously thats a concept seiken never has learned or accepted.

    I agree but a sport would have done things differently then again what do you expect from someone takes home bisquits from a buffet in a doggie bag

    That’s Seiken, always looking for a handout.

    sports don’t reward losers, seiken is a born loser

  25. anonymous said

    April 26, 2015 @ 8:07 pm

    Seiken should be banned from MLE for extremely low capacity unbecoming of a real eater.

    Lefevre is one cheap bastard just ask Ron Koch

  27. anonymous said

    April 26, 2015 @ 8:41 pm

    Damom Wells, Kevin Ross and Tom Gilbert and a few others would have liked to compete but cannot because of other contests. What gives Rich and Carlene a free pass even though they constantly break the rules?

    The Lefevres remind the Sheas of Thurston and Lovey Howell from Gilligan Island How can you turn them down?

    The 5th – 8th place finishers made a certain NY legend look like a champion.

    It would seem obvious as to why you’re a waitress. Hope you are hot.
