O & A egg nog contest to offer trip to Colorado

An Opie & Anthony message board has some information about the upcoming egg nog drinking contest:

For the Eggnog contest one of the prizes is a trip to Colorado. That will probably happen at the NY Hard Rock Café perhaps on December 7th. The Homeless Shopping Spree will probably be on the 15th. Joey, the guy who won the Nathan’s Hot Dog contest, had previously said that he wants to be in the eggnog contest but they’ve heard rumors that the competitive food organization may want them to pay money.

Pat from Moonachie. He will be in the Eggnog contest. He sounds down. His new used van is more of a money pit than his old van. The eating organization passed over him for something that was on Spike TV, it was supposed to be the top 16 eaters and he is number 16. He thinks it was because he is the only fat one in the group.

Pat Philbin article in has an article about Pat “from Moonachie” Philbin which focuses on his suspension and reinstatement.

“We felt that the video that he did for ‘Opie & Anthony’ was somewhat outrageous,” Shea said. “But I think that, given the overwhelming support that he has among fans, there was a sense that we reacted too quickly and too strongly.

“There was a rush to judgment,” Shea said. “And we reversed it.”

Opie & Anthony St. Patrick’s Day egg eating contest cancelled

From – registration required to view post.

A hard boiled egg eating contest held at the Hard Rock Cafe in New York City was supposed to have been broadcast live on the Opie & Anthony show on Saint Patrick’s Day. Like the egg nog drinking contest held on air in December, the contest would have featured Pat “from Moonachie” Philbin and Badlands Booker, but would have also been open to the general public. That event could not be held because due to problems with state and/or local government. A lack of a permit was one reason given why the contest could not take place.

Booker defeats Philbin in Egg Nog

(from On the Opie and Anthony radio show this morning, Eric “Badlands” Booker defeated Pat “from Moonachie” Philbin in an Egg Nog drinking contest. Both Philbin and Booker vomited after drinking 71 double shots of the holiday beverage, but Philbin suffered a reversal of fortune first, giving Booker the victory. If you missed the contest, you can relive it through an 800+ post thread on the Opie and Anthony message board.

I am surprised that IFOCE endorsed this event (I am assuming that the IFOCE contract would require approval for a contest like this) as I don’t think it promotes the image of competitive eating they would like portrayed.
