Competive Spud Eating: 13 lbs. of Salt Potatoes in 10 Minutes!?!
In CNY, salt potatoes are a favorite. And I guess now there's a salt potato eating competition in our area. Joey Chesnut, a winner of the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, won the first ever salt potato eating contest in Baldwinsville, NY. I like salt potatoes, but a 1/4 pound is more than enough for me. This whole competitive eating thing, has me puzzled, facinated and repulsed all at the same time. Anyone else heard of potato eating contests?
