Wing Bowl 14

Feb 2, 2006, 11:42 AM EDT

The Wingbowl is tomorrow at 6 in the morning at the Wachovia Center.  I will attend the event for the first time.  I’ve set up my flickr account so I should be able to send photos live from the event and they will show up here.  So keep an eye out tomorrow morning, and you can listen live on the Internet as well.

Some Links: Superbowl or Wingbowl? [DailyLocal]:

Most people know about the Super Bowl, but not as many know about what
could be America’s loudest, largest and rowdiest chicken-wing-eating
contest, held annually at the Wachovia Center.

Where the official wings come from.  [CityPaper]:

Being the Bowl’s wings supplier unfortunately involves more than just
fraternizing with scantily clad Wingettes. Blackman says his staff
starts cooking the 7,000-wing, 900-pound order at midnight Thursday and
keeps the fryer on through 4:30 a.m., when the wings are loaded on a
truck for the trip to the Wachovia Center. There they’re placed in
warmers and then counted out on plates: 10 drumsticks and 10 blades
each. All this at the start of Super Bowl weekend, one of the Rib
Ranch’s busiest.

Get ready for the Wing Bowl movie: [Philly.com]

Havertown-born Hollywood producer Mike Tollin is producing a Wing Bowl movie, whose script is being written by Vince McKewin (The Replacements). A documentary called Swallow Your Pride, made by Joshua Camerote and Brian James Dwyer, is in the can. A cable outlet is talking about televising the contest, starring the morning show’s Angelo Cataldi, Al Morganti and Rhea Hughes.
