V! I went there with some friends after work last Friday. They were talking it up and said there was this big dude that always wins. Was that you that won?! Shit, what was that, 7 seconds or something?
Impressive. And they have good food too. A little loud but great atmosphere. I should have come and introduced myself. Next time.

I expect the same result of this ninth contest. I've asked Tink to be document the performance. The finals are at the end of the month. I'll report the results when I have them.

Wish me luck!
Another year, another plate of oysters.

This is the qualifying round, next week is the final competition. I wish my cameraman had let the tape run for another ten or fifteen seconds so I could see how far back second place was. I have to get a better start too. Some of these people started on 3 - 2 - 1, and I, sucker that I am, started on "Slurp!". No biggie. I still crushed them. Puny earthlings.

Stay tuned for the finals next Friday! If any of you are in the area, come on over, introduce yourself. We'll have a great time.

It's Friday in March in Seattle.

You all know what that means, right?

At this time, I'm 14-0. Tonight at 6pm I will defend my record in a qualifying round of oyster slurping. If I win tonight, I'll be eligible to compete in the championship round on the last Friday of the month.

Wish me suck!






wait!!!


wish me LUCK!!!!!

winnah winnah oystah dinnnah!

It's official, I'm 15-0 (shellfish of me, I know). My prize was a gift certificate for two breakfast or lunch entrees, approx $30 value. Plus the free oysters, of course. But this contest was very close, less than a second between first and second. I've qualified for the championship round at the end of March. And, I've been invited back for next week, "in case I don't have enough people". Ok, come on down for a plate of free oysters?. Can do.

wooT!!
