Black Widow calls foul at Wing Bowl

Feb 14, 2005, 1:56 PM EDT

Sonya Thomas, winner of Wing Bowl XII, claims she was robbed of the repeat in Wing Bowl XIII when she lost by one wing in over time to El Wingador.  This seems to happen after every Wing Bowl, so it’s really not a surprise.   Angelo Cataldi was going nuts about this on the morning show, one of the few times I found him funny recently.

Thomas wants Wing Bowl to follow guidelines set by the International Federation of Competitive Eating, which sanctioned Wing Bowl this year. In its other "detritus" contests, such as lobster- and rib-eating, it calculates the weight of food consumed.
