    REGISTRATION FOR THIS EVENT IS TEMPORARILY CLOSED means that it will not be held or they will wait. Foolish to even be publicizing it.

    Coronavirus concerns will last for years.

    Until they discover a vaccine you wont be seeing any eating contests for quite some time. The social distancing alone will mark the end of competitive eating as we know it , not to mention bodily fluids or fluids in general passing from one adjacent competitor to the other. In other words , to those who sole income was a GTD paycheck at Nathans , those days are over . You will need to go out and look for a 9-5 like everyone else unless your name is Badlands Booker or Matt Stonie and Badlands has a 9-5 anyway

    If there’s a blessing among all the grim news associated with coronavirus, it’s that it will help people better discern important things in life from those of lesser priority.

    For me i intend to be a much better person if i get through this. I will never allow the little discrepancies in life bring me down. However if 911 is any indication how fellow man came together at a time of crisis , the situation we are in now is even more of a reason for the world to love one another. Keep in mind though that after 911 everyone was cordial to one another for a short lived period of time. As time went by the assholes who all of a sudden became nice , went back to being assholes. . Crime is down a ton only because the murderers and thieves fear for their own safety. Once everything goes back to normal , expect the crime rate to soar with the economy. Just the way it is but there is always reason to hope it wont be

    I doubt Booker is smothering anyone with his bear hugs lately

    Why does it seem like all members of MLE are invincible to this virus. Not one has yet to report symptoms of the virus unless they dont want to make it public. Booker acts like hes as fit as a fiddle still chugging 3 gallons of soda with a smile then advising everyone to stay home and that corona is no joke. If its no joke then why is your ass still going to work?

    Booker’s work is one of those vitally needed professions. If he had any symptoms, he is required to report them and self-quarantine for 14 days with the hope that the virus would not be too severe. Some people, especially those in the health industry in NYC, need public transportation.

    935 im sorry but if i was in his shoes i would take a leave of absence until this shit dies down,. If i was in the health care industry i would do the same as well. Call me a coward . Besides his YT earnings are enough to take care of his expenses for quite some time. He hasnt been a conductor for years . He works on the subway tracks
