NBC4: Sonya Thomas to do NC Ribs

NBC4 (Washington DC local news) interviewed Sonya Thomas after Nathan’s, which is mentioned in the station’s blog. Sonya said that she intended to do Friday’s rib contest at Harrah’s casino in Cherokee, NC. Dale Boone is also expected to compete in that contest and interesting (in the Chinese curse meaning of the word) things tend to happen when those two compete. I don’t believe that Sonya has ever lost in VA, DC, MD, DE or NC.

    Sonya says she has never eaten Ribs before. She’s going against some tough people to be eating a food she’s not familiar with. I’m very confident for her, tempered with caution, however. Rich and Tim are certainly nothing to sneeze at, especially after Tim’s performance in Dogs. Tim could possibly win the whole thing, but I doubt it. I’m predicting Sonya (by over a pound), Tim, Rich, in that order.

    Was I right about Sonya or what?

    Mr. Wright I do believe Sonya to be telling the truth about not having eaten some foods prior to competition. I bet there are plenty of contests featuring foods that she is unfamiliar with whereby had she attended she wouldn’t do as well as she liked. She apparently, for the most part, knows both her abilities and her limitations.
