Good morning, people! I'm here, trapped in some crazy parking lot traffic. Stay tuned!
Yes! Sold out for Wing Bowl 20. It's nuts in here!
So, anyway, before the photos et al begin -- I'm here, camped out ON the Wing Bowl stage, hanging out with my guys: Lou Nolan and Al Morganti. Wish me luck, CSNPhilly readers.
First up! Elmer Fudd. A float with lots of red...
No idea, but I'll do my best to take a photo!
Aaaaand we have our first problem. Mister 1%'s float got stuck and almost ran over Al Morganti. He's en route around the arena now.
Yikes.That photo was sideways. Sorry about that. Flip your computer if you need to, I guess.
Anyway, Quazy was just up, I'm told he won a Wing Off recently? Is he formidable? I don't know. Maybe.
I'm under the impression that Kobayashi is THE guy to beat. But what do I know? I write about hockey.
Next up, a guy I don't recognize -- the Ukraine Train. I think his theme is ... a train? OK. Cool. I guess.
Also, for those of you who were wondering -- yes, there is as much confetti this year as there was last year.
The general consensus on stage is that Eaterama has the worst float ever. That's because ... he has no float. Or ladies. He just as a bunch of dudes twirling shirts in the air. So, yeah. There's that.
God no. I've been here three OTHER times. I'm a freakin' pro.
From Allentown up next is The Rooster, who apparently ate a giant pot pie in less than a minute. That's impressive, right? I don't even like pot pie.
Ha, thanks. I have Lou and Al to protect me, so at least there's that.
Oh, and Ricky Bottalico is here, and he just threw a piece of gum at me. I guess I have morning breath. Sorry, Wing Bowl people!
It's maybe a 6 right now ... but give it time, Dennis. It's only 6:31!
Also, considering this is a family friendly website, I can't take a photo of Rick's poster, but it says, "Have a Tit for Humanity!"
Anyone have any idea what that means? If I have two, does that make me ultra humane, as Al suggests ... ?
Depends ... done with the photo yet? :)
Side note: This event always makes me feel inferior for not owning a pair of fishnet stockings.
Seems that way, so far! Kind of a cool indicator, actually -- people dig the Sixers again!
Still waiting on Rick the Manager's float to take off on its round-the-arena journey. But I gotta admit, it's pretty good, even though I've never played Angry Birds.
Lou says I'm awesome even without fishnets! So hey, there's my ego boost for this early morning.
For those who have never been to Wing Bowl: It gets LOUD in here. Like, really loud. But it gets especially loud when whoever's working the camera the big screen in here is showing shows a girl about to take her top off...
But I will tell you this: I love the camera guys -- they always steer the camera away JUST BEFORE you see anything. Muahahaha. So evil.
