Chestnut Wins Third Straight WIP Wing Bowl
February 1, 2008 at 6:44 AM (PT)
Professional eating champion JOEY CHESTNUT ate 241 chicken wings to win CBS Sports WIP-A/PHILADELPHIA's "WING BOWL 16" before a sellout crowd at WACHOVIA CENTER. The win is CHESTNUT's third straight at the annual event; he beat out fellow pro eater PATRICK BERTOLETTI and former WING BOWL champ BILL "EL WINGADOR" SIMMONS to win a TOYOTA Tundra and ring.
The annual bacchanal is the product of WIP's "ANGELO CATALDI AND THE MORNING TEAM" show, with former SIXERS owner PAT CROCE as Commissioner.
