    They should have cancelled Mardi Gras. Just watched Bidens interview on Anderson Cooper Joe convinced me he is not worthy to be President. Mentally lacking. CNN is evil and not informative They only Trump bash and this country will show in November that the liberals are lame and just want to burn money with no hope for America Pelosi is evil to the bone.

    Anyone else notice that all Nathan’s events have removed also?

    11:23 Trump would rather have many die in order to save the economy. That is why a Democrat is far better to vote for. This is off topic though. I am sure they will cancel Mardi Gras.

    Nathan’s events have not been cancelled. Look at their website. Perhaps the qualifiers are missing, but Sweet corn is on and events following that. They have a completely new website, new to me anyway.

    The only Nathan’s qualifier that had been listed and removed was for April 4 in Las Vegas.

    What’s going on in the world now gives perspective to priorities, of which planning for an eating contest is underneath the carpet.

    “The only Nathan’s qualifier that had been listed and removed was for April 4 in Las Vegas.”
    Are the others still listed? I could not find them. Perhaps looking in the wrong place.

    On March 9, the Las Vegas qualifier was announced, with the remainder of the circuit coming in the near future.

    the only way the curb will flatten and decrease is if the so called drugs and other antibody treatments they are experimenting with , happens to work. If not, the thousands of people who have been infected since the beginning of the month whom are on ventilators in dire condition will die . They can test all they want but it wont change things. The curb will just increase. They can social distance all they want but that will take months just to make a small dent in the curb. Without a vaccine or drug , things will get much worse before they get better. Nathans should not be mentioned in the same breath with this virus

    Competitive eating won’t be the same anymore. I think this is something people need to get used to in both the short and long term. Also, these food challenge people need to really think about the future. Posting challenge vids is a bit ridiculous. It may be entertaining now to eat enough food to feed a family but just wait til the economic situation really starts to take shape.

    Enough already about the virus! This is not the forum for those comments. We all know what is happening. Find another forum for your opinions. Sick of this highjacking!

    You need to draw a line between engaging in these challenges to try and make us forget the fear and tension the world is going through right now or decide whether its just not the time and place for it at this moment. Hard choice. I know its easier said than done, but keep in mind if you can isolate yourself at home for a good four to six weeks straight , you can feel confident you are immune to the virus and hopefully by that time the pandemic will be over. The virus cannot penetrate closed doors remember that . As long as you are home alone you are safe . If others live in your household they will have to adhere to the same guidelines or you have defeated the purpose

    Well Doctor 5:35, as I said before, find yourself another forum. Perhaps Dr. Fauci would like you on his
    Virus team challenge since you know so much. Please stick to competitive eating or go away.

    4:20 pm you are fool to turn the other cheek when we are dealing with a life and death situation. This is not the time and place to discuss eating contests. It is not hijacking it is real life affecting us all. So what do you want to talk about at this stage of the game? Meaningless oyster contests ? Would it make you feel any better to discuss New Orleans oyster contest which is not going to take place , or the countless number of lives that might be lost in New Orleans dud to the pandemic ?

    Tump he is. Is that a new kind of food challenge? How many Tumps can you eat in 2 minutes? Sponsored by the incompetent White House Tumpburger without any safety net EMT.

    It’s nice to see that after two months of distress signals that he has FINALLY been convinced by others that there’s a REAL problem in this country. He should have known what was coming in February. The medical experts certainly did as did anyone who has been following this virus since it’s inception.
    No this is not a comment on competitive eating but one that concerns all of us and the welfare of our future.

    4:13 pm, in total agreement. If we had had a competent President who listened to his advisors, albeit some very poor ones except for Dr. Fauci, if, if, if, we would be in far less of a predicament. My guess is that MLE and Nathans will not go out of business, for sure. They will take a hit but not go bankrupt. When a year or so has passed, the contests will return, especially July 4th.

    4:13 there is no need to apologize because your comment is not about competitive eating . Anyone who tries to post a comment about competitive eating at a time like this, obviously has no regard for human life

    Notice how CNN tries to throw news about possible drug treatment for the virus under the table but rather dwell on the horror stories coming out of the Elmhurst and Brooklyn concentration camp hospitals?. I stopped watching Cant take it anymore . Frightening the american people is worse than the virus itself . Every single one of those evil correspondents should rot in hell

    A Fox news reporter was fired for calling the virus a hoax. Fox news is changing its tune. But how long will they have urges contrary to swallowing? FoxElivis has left the building.

    Jimmy Kimmel is desperate for skype guests while the virus is going on. Why doesnt Booker reach out to him and do one of his chugs for the show.? After all he was on his show when it first came on the air in 2003
