    Wow .. WLOCE is on the move in Asia. I guess they are the real deal with Asian contests 365 days a year. In Asia.

    And they have them 365 days a year on Mars, too. The martians just love ’em!

    I am not sure if that is a public relations strategy WLOCE sponsors would like to see implemented.

    *snicker* – I see Dale “World Loser” lost to some local at the Shane’s Rib Shack contest in Atlanta at the beginning of the month.

    World renowned reporter and journalist Brian Seiken probably knows who this person is. If it was so important, he would have reported it first.

    Brian Seiken now he has to come up to the standards of eatfeats and Ignatius Rake and figure out what new he can contribute to competitive eating. Try personal interviews and be positive, old tapes from the past are good, but clean up your site, you can do this and have it all. I have more faith in you than you have in yourself, I would bet. Find your niche, things change, you have to go with the changes. And drop the shitty attitude above all and stop swearing and tearing down people. That’s it. It will work!

    I agree. Brian Seiken’s footprint in CE would grow if he cleaned up his act and stayed positive.
