OK, done. I went head-to-head with the world champion of competitive eating, Joey Chestnut. Well sort of. I did participate in a contest with him and nine other competitive eaters. I didn’t puke. And I won the bet. That’s right, our friends at the Yankees AA club, Trenton Thunder challenged me to eat at least six pork roll sandwiches at their second annual pork roll eating competition. Six? I can do six. Of course most of my radio colleagues bet the under thinking that there is no way I’d be able to consume nearly two pounds. They did have good reason to make what was arguably the “safe bet”. My Chasing News colleague Jessica Nutt presented the full story today for “Chasing News” starting off with “working weekends can be fun…” Lemme explain what she meant…
Our weekend started with a “Pork Roll Pep Rally” sponsored by the Thunder at Killarney’s pub in Hamilton.
Ready for tomorrow’s competition. We’re at the pub and the trash talk has already started pic.twitter.com/n7tDRItFQ0
