For this Veterans Day, I want to take a moment to thank all our military heroes, past and present, for their sacrifices in
defending our nation. Freedom isn't free. It is my honor, and a most treasured pride, to serve them and their
families 24/7/365. That's my way of serving our country.
2013-11-01: The next few months are slow
for most Major League Eaters, me included. But, things should start heating up again in early 2014. Actually,
that's good, as it gives people / me a chance to refocus.
I want to give a shout out to Ignatius Rake and staff
of The Rake and Herald for the publicity he continues to give Major League Eaters in his expert, lively, interesting reporting
of competitive eating. And, I can never forget "Beautiful" Brian Seiken, and "Crazy Legs" Conti
for their strong (that's an understatment) support ever since I started eating competitively in June 2003.
intend to have some upside surprises for my fans in 2014, each of whom I thank and owe a debt of gratitude. Until next
year, I hope everyone has a warm and wonderful holiday season!
