I was at the Philadelphia Wing Bowl yesterday. 610 WIP Sport talk event went from small in studio experiment to 19000 plus spectators. Although its less about the wing eating these days and more about drinking early in the morning, women flashing the jumbotron and being at a strip club shortly there after. I had my first beverage of the day before 6am and was feeling no pain by 8am.

Philadelphia's local champ "El Wingador" didn't win, didn't even come in second. For those that care Joey Chestnut hate 240 some wings. I can't remember the exact number for obvious reasons. While most boo'd him for not being El Wingador, I was impressed. This is America's hope to take back the Nathan's Hot Dog contest from Kobiashi (that can't be spelled right, but I'm too lazy to look it up)

Next year I plan on entering and having the hottest wingettes ever. I'm still surprised some of these guys have girls that looked like they were picked up at a trailer park on the way down I95. I'm currently taking suggestions on what my entrance test will be. I'm thinking sticks of butter.

Mythbusters and Smashlab

Alright I know this isn't sports related, but I'm not hanging out on most days so I'm writing it here. I'm a huge fan of Mythbusters, If I could pick my dream job it would to be a cast member. I'd love testing everything you can think of. For the most part I think they get most of the stuff right. Every once in a while a disagree with something they do etc etc and a lot of times they revisit it in another show because of feedback.

Now on to Smashlab, what I as Discovery Channel's attempt to cash in further on Mythbuster's success. There is one huge problem though, for the most part the show SUCKS! The logic in the show is horrible. Tonight they are trying ways to stop runaway cars etc... and none of their stuff works... funny thing is we solved this 50+ years ago. I used to drive home all the time in college from PSU and go down a very steep grade on 322. At the bottom of the hill was a run away truck ramp.... small hills of gravel that the trucks would hit and stop the truck... proven to work all across the country.. here these guys are trying to figure out away to do it and can't. Idiots.

Random rant I know.... sorry....

Have a great night....

Is anyone else torn as to what you want the Sixers to do this year? I've wanted them to lose every game, trade away some salary and make run at some nice free agents next season. Then I'm watching the Rockets game last night and I want them to win... they young guys are really starting to win me over in their hustle and grit. Something every Philly Phan loves to see. Thaddeus Young was a huge "bust" in the beginning of the year, many thought he didn't look like a first rounder. This kid is coming around! In the last 2 weeks he is averaging 8.5 points and 4 rebs in just 19 minutes a game. By all means I'm not saying he will be an Alll Star next year, but he looks like he could be a very good player in the years to come. Louis Williams I thought was a waste of a draft pick several years ago.. I was thinking how many years are we going to have to wait for this kid to come around. Well looks like the timing is pretty good! He has scored in double figures in 8 of the last 9 games and has should he can drop a few dimes. Even Sammy has looked better then his norm as of late, the team seems to have some fire in its belly and while they didn't beat the Spurs a couple nights ago... they looked good against them most of the game. Is anyone else wondering it we are a nice trade and free agent signing away this summer from being one of the top Eastern teams? *Note I said Eastern there.......
