Gulf coast contests in jeopardy due to Ike?

An anonymous comment claims that the kolache eating contest at the Houston Astros game Friday night and the grits eating contest in Louisiana on Saturday will be cancelled due to hurricane Ike. No official decision appears to have been announced, but the Houston Astros website does report that the Astros game on Friday will be played at 1:05 pm if it appears that Ike will threaten Houston.

    Cancelling grits would SUCK! I was looking forward to seeing the insane totals put up by the competitors.
