All competitive eating fans should be rooting against Bayer Leverkusen in its Champions League match with Barcelona today since Leverkusen is owned by Bayer AG, which cancelled the US Open of Competitive Eating in 2006.

    Ironies abound. Glad to see that actually there is some viewpoint being expressed here. Like it very much. “Politics” makes strange eating fellows. And caving to pressure makes for weak spines. Bayer and Alka Seltzer are bringing in the bucks no matter what. ““People overdo it,” according Bayer’s latest U.S. ads for Alka-Seltzer. “That’s why for 75 years they’ve reached for Alka- Seltzer to break up and dissolve away stomach discomfort and pain, fast.”……….No kidding Sherlock.
