Yesterday, Pat "Deep Dish" Bertoletti of Chicago won the "Wing Street" eating contest at the Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas, Nevada.

He upset current points leader (and reigning Nathan's champ) Joey Chestnut and held off a comeback by second ranked Takeru Kobayashi to win the chicken wing "Chowdown."

The third ranked Bertoletti wolfed down 4.1 pounds of wings in 8 miutes, narrowly beating number one ranked Joey Chestnut, who came up short with a 4.05 total. Kobayashi finished third, weighing in at 3.12 pounds.

This left the crowd shocked, as many were hoping to see a showdown between Chestnut and Kobayashi. After the event you could definitely feel the mood change in the air and many left disappointed.

The atmosphere of the crowd during the preliminaries at times seemed bored and many were simply just tourists who had stepped outside nearby casinos just to see what all the hullabaloo was about. Most quickly returned to the slots and tables of the nearby casinos.

When asked for comment, Lindsay Hugo, a tourist visiting from Philadelpia remarked, "I don't know. Maybe it's a guy thing. It just seems silly. I'm not lingering around any longer for some stupid non-sporting contest.

Another tourist, Willam Berr of Boston, had a more cynical view of these types of contests in general. "You know, with all the starving people in the world it just seems that our government could stop holding back our food supplies and keep these contests from happening. I'm sure we have stockpiles of food that are hidden in giant underground silos for when a nuclear war eventually happens.

New Jersey resident Rich McFarlane had this to say. "As a devout and practicing Jew, it just turns my shtomach, and no that wasn't meant as a joke. My people were starved during the Holocause and to just see food being wasted like this is just a tragesty.

There were a few animal rights activists that weren't allowed near the event, but when asked for comment, an anonymous protester said, "I doubt those are 'Free Range' chickens they got those Wings from. I know I for one will BOYCOTT Spike TV and their sponsors if they ever decide to air this show. It stinks and I don't like it!"

Pat Oneil of Massachusetts had a less harsh assessment of what had transpired, simply saying, "It is what it is."

The event was taped for a special on Spike TV to be aired at a later date.

I wonder if this is an O&A fan?

Good riddens, this shit-box deserved to be a failure since the Top 16 eaters were not in fact invited.

Clever, but ultimately rooned by truly atrocious writing. Like if The Onion was a 3rd grade school project.
