    This was def one of the most frustrating contests I’ve been in.
    Joel selected a dude that’s not really on the circuit and he had an epic fail.
    When I finally sat down, I had one of my quickest wing eats ever. We would have 3peated with someone else.
    I, for one, will have revenge next year 😛

    I don’t believe in teams. You have to hope that you’re team mate doesn’t screw up ans obviously he did

    I agree with unfair. Going into the event that was the team we were most of concern with. Our third team member was on there level but just didnt deliver.

    What are you talking about Papagorgio? What is this team you are referring to and which supposedly great eater didn’t deliver?

    There was 7 teams who competed. Since there was only a prize for 1st place the competition is over when the once a team finishes. The team that won consisted of Squibb, Tiger Wings and Furious Pete. My team consisted of me Papagorgio, US Male and El Wingador. Yes thee El Wingador 5 time Wing Bowl Champ. Since this was a 3 person relay race were each eater has to eat 25 wings and have a clear mouth (cant have have any wings meat or chewing in the mouth) before the next team member goes. I ate against Squibb and I ate all of my wings before Squibb but i had some trouble clearing my mouth. Squibb cleared his mouth about 2 seconds before me. The next two eater were Tiger Wings and US Male. US Male was able to get those few second i was behind of squibb and get a small lead on Tiger Wings. So it came down to Furious Pete and El Wingador. Furious Pete absolutely demolished his wings. El Wingador just did not do well. I was the one who organized my team. I knew that my team or Squibbs team were going to win. I wish i could of said that it was my fault for my teams lost being that i am the least experienced out of all of the eaters above. Ask any of the eater participating I was a machine. You would think that El Wingador would crush 25 wings but was not the case. I dont know and may never know why El Wingador was so bad. When Pete finished El Wingador still had around 8 wings left. So going into the last leg it was on the shoulders of Pete and Wingador.

    Now there where alot of good eaters participating. The 2x repeating champion team was Joel “The Cannon” Podelsky, Will “The Champ” Millender and Unknown eater. Last Year there 3rd eater was Gentleman Joe Menchetti. The only other team worth mentioning consisted of 3 Local Wing Bowl Eaters. John “Freak of Nature” Harker, Kenso Kevin, and Quasi. Out of those 2 teams there 3rd eater never even had a chance to eat. It was only my team and Squibbs team who got to there 3rd eater.

    The unknown eater is Mark Reigelsberger. He was outstanding when i’ve gone against him in the past.

    As I understand it, he’s had some health issues, that apparently sapped his eating prowess.

    W/out me, Joel wanted to go for the Hr instead of a known, steady quantity.

    That bit hit in the arse, but I certainly understand the gamble.

    I stayed very close to home & won tickets w/a retail value over half of the total win of this contest for eating 10 hotdogs, in the rare contest that Oj didn’t find. (He/she isn’t perfect)

    Joel Podelsky is a good eater?

    That’s the trifecta!! People actually thought they could beat this team? What the hell were they thinking? I wouldn’t come near a table where these three were working as one. I’d say good job guys, but I expect nothing other than a win for u team blank.
