Wing Bowl 2011: The Super Bowl of Competitive Eating


wing bowlCan’t win the Super Bowl? Or don’t have the athletic ability to compete in professional sports?

Well, some people who had those same thoughts came up with the Wing Bowl back in 1993. Today is the Wing Bowl 2011, held in Philadelphia.

Yes, the Wing Bowl 2011 is what the name implies: it’s an eating contest.

I never really understand competitive eating, but apparently the seats are packed to watch this event every year. Is this a sport? And are you a celebrity if you win?

 The highlight of this year’s event is that a five-time winner is returning to face off against the man who won the Wing Bowl for the past two years.

Would you watch the Wing Bowl 2011? Would you ever participate in an eating contest?
