WIP Sets Wing Bowl 16
November 26, 2007 at 4:03 PM (PT)
CBS Sports WIP-A/PHILADELPHIA will hold its 16th WING BOWL gluttony -- er, competitive eating event on FEBRUARY 1st at WACHOVIA SPECTRUM, former home of the FLYERS and SIXERS. Tickets for the eating extravaganza will go on sale DECEMBER 12th through COMCASTTIX.COM.
Five-time champion BILL "EL WINGADOR" SIMMONS is coming out of retirement to take on two-time champ JOEY CHESTNUT and others to be selected in auditions for the next several weeks. PJ WHELIHANS restaurant is supplying this year's wings, with LIBERTY TOYOTA providing a TOYOTA Tundra and SCION as prizes. WING BOWL was devised by morning hosts ANGELO CATALDI and AL MORGANTI, with MORGANTI serving as the ultimate judge of which wannabe competitive eaters will make it to the big show, which routinely sells out.
