    I still don't get how eating is a sport, like can I say I play a sport every time I eat?

    I feel for humanity.

    So many starving people in the world
    And you got this kinda thing going on.

    Back in the day my mother would say "Don't Play With Your Food"
    Food is and should be a privilege - not turned into a game or to entertain.

    I mean what do you actually get out of watching it or taking part ?

    I don't know man....maybe it's just me ?

    Wait a minute, if it's regulated it makes it a sport? Well that makes your thread about sports that should not be considered sports obsolete, because they are regulated too.

    ---- 120-Pound Woman Sets Speed Record Eating 72-Ounce Steak

    --- 125-pound mother of four devours record number of wings to win Philly's Wing Bowl


    Molly Schuyler, a 125-pound mother of four, defeated all comers, including a Philadelphia Eagles center, to win Friday's Wing Bowl 22 in Philadelphia.

    Schuyler devoured 363 wings in 30 minutes for the victory. You read that right: 363 wings. Ms. Schuyler, a mother of four from Omaha (OMAHA!), Nebraska, will have to understand why she's not going to be invited to many Super Bowl parties.

    The Wing Bowl is the creation of Philadelphia radio station WIP. Now in its 22nd year, it's a combination of rock concert and Vegas buffet, and it takes place in the early morning at the Wells Fargo Center. Celebrities from both Philadelphia and the world of competitive eating gather to take part, and this year, a most unexpected upset took place.

    Schuyler's 363 wings demolished the old record of 337 set by Takeru Kobayashi two years ago. In the first 14-minute round, Schuyler consumed 186 wings. By the second 14-minute round, she was at 334. Then she knocked back the rest in the two-minute speed round to claim the prize.

    Also in attendance: Eagles center Jason Kelce, who consumed "only" 65 wings and didn't make it out of the first round. “The hardest part was the speed,” Kelce told a local CBS outlet. “I’m not used to eating like this this early in the morning. I’m usually eating eggs and bacon. But this was awesome. It was a great experience. But the speed got me. I’m usually not a fast eater, and I know I could have gone another 14 minutes eating. But the speed factor was killing me. I’ve never seen anyone eat as fast as these people. It’s amazing.”


    Other Philly celebs in attendance included Eagles coach Chip Kelly and former Phillie Matt Stairs.

    Schuyler is scheduled to compete in the IHOP Pancake Bowl on Saturday in Des Moines, then will hit the Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival later that day. Keep your fingers, children, and pets away from her, for your own safety.

    “I think I could eat some more,” Schuyler said afterward. “This was freaking crazy. I kept eating and I kept saying I didn’t want to know how many wings I ate until the end. I just wanted to focus on what I was doing. But I don’t think I want to eat another chicken wing for a while. Hopefully I’ll be back next year.”

    ---- Joey Chestnut Wins Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest Again



    Winning his eighth consecutive Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest wasn't enough for Joey Chestnut so he decided to spice up the festivities Friday. Before the competition, Chestnut got on one knee to propose to girlfriend Neslie Ricasa.

    Ricasa immediately said yes. Then Chestnut went on to make the day all the more special by holding off the challenge of fellow San Jose native Matt "Megatoad" Stonie 61-56.

    "I knew he was close," Chestnut said on ESPN. "This kid is fast. The hot dogs were slow today. The weather slowed everything down. I could never find my rhythm. It was just a dogfight the entire time."

    Chestnut, who set the record with 69 hot dogs last year, trailed Stonie 38-36 at the halfway mark of the 10-minute event. Stonie had beaten Chestnut last year at a gyoza (dumplings) competition in Los Angeles.

    With three minutes left, it was 47-47. With two minutes left, it was 51-51. Then with one minute left, Chestnut led 55-54. He opened his lead to 58-56 with 30 seconds left to secure the victory.

    After matching UCLA basketball (1967-1973) with seven consecutive titles last year and the Boston Celtics (1959-1966) with eight this year, next up for Chestnut is Iowa's nine straight NCAA wrestling championships (1978-1986).

    Stonie also finished second last year, and he closed the gap from 69-51 to 61-56.

    Takeru Kobayashi was the runnerup in Chestnut's first three Nathan's championships. But Kobayashi hasn't competed in the Nathan's competition since 2010 after refusing to sign an exclusive contract with Major League Eating.


    For the first time since Nathan's created a women's division in 2011, 47-year-old Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas is not the champion.

    Miki Sudo of Las Vegas beat Thomas by eating 34 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Thomas finished 27 , a drop from her winning total of 36 last year and the record of 45 she established in 2012.

    Sudo, 28, said her goal was to also break Thomas' record but the rain was a factor.

    "To be the first person to beat Sonya Thomas at hot dogs is surreal," Sudo said. I think both of us are hoping to break the existing world record of 45 in 10 minutes but weather conditions got in the way but well definitely be back to set a higher number."

    I wish competitive eating were a big thing in Europe. I think it's a lot of fun. Doesn't gross me out at all.

    Timothy, is competitive eating a thing in the UK and/or Ireland? I'm being serious here, not ironic. (I really do think competitive eating is cool.)
