Kobayashi just got introduced. His float and stuff are insane. Seriously insane. There are mummers and monsters and I don't even know where to begin. Photo soon.
(those things are Kobayashi's)
OK so I think that may be it for the float portion. I'm still on the stage, which is terrifying, so I need to find somewhere to be that is out of the risk of being puked on.
Wherever you are, it's probably safer than ON THE FREAKING STAGE.
I'm so going to get puked on, aren't I?
I can't promise I'm going to keep my eyes open during this.
OK, so we're about to get started here, people.
National Anthem now .... and no, they're not going nuts.
Probably because there are no boobs involved.
Its very, very, very, very loud in here.
The eating has commenced.
Wait! They started going nuts!
See below guys -- if it works, I just took a little video for ya.
I can tell you this much, people: The wings are kind of small. I know they'll all eat hundreds of these things, but I estimate they're like 3" long each.
Certainly more than on a typical Friday, yes. Especially on a typical Friday before 8 a.m.
So, just to let you know, there is currently about nine minutes left in the opening round of eating. The guys around me seem to be taking their time.
OK, so here's an update. I just got moved from the stage to a VIP area. There are porn stars here.
At least I'm not out of danger of being puked on.
Well, when you put it like that ... I really ought to reevaluate all my career choices.
Update: We've got just under three minutes to go in the first round. No puking yet!
I honestly don't know the exact number, but I can tell you I'm under the impression it sold out.
