Clipped wings

    Changes are afoot to the Wing Bowl. A spokesperson for the Major League Eaters confirmed to reporter Peter Crimmins that the MLE will not sanction Wing Bowl 19.


    The decision came after the Wing Bowl host WIP-AM began allowing professional eaters into its contest, a no-no by MLE standards. This could lead to a dust-up in the pro-eating world, as professionals will now have to decide whether to particpate in the non-sanctioned Bowl and go against the MLE.

    Things could get ugly. In every sense of the word.
