Wing Bowl 2011: Super Squibb Bests El Wingador

New, comments

The Wing Bowl is a pre-Superbowl tradition in Philly that amazingly is in its 19th year. The Friday before the Superbowl people pack the Wells Fargo Center to see the spectacle of strippers and eaters that's grown into a national event. This years Wing Bowl didn't disappoint and will likely go down as one of the greats in the events' history.

This year's contest came down to two former champions, the legendary El Wingador and Super Squibb, both hailing from South Jersey, and may go down as the closest wing bowl of them all. The two champions both broke the previous record of 241 wings, but it was Super Squibb who emerged victorious with 255 wings, one more than Wingador. Wingador announced after the event that he would not return for Wing Bowl 20.

Next year will however see the return of hot dog eating legend Kobayashi, who after breaking the speed cheesteak eating record this morning, vowed to return for Wing Bowl 20.
