2 minutes of KRYSTALS

My next contest will be a 2-minute Krystal contest in Jacksonville. I am looking forward to participating in a short contest. It should be very intense. To be honest, I would be happy to get in the double digits.
I have to give props to Joey eating 28 in 2-minutes. I would not have believed it if I didn't see it. Even now I am curious if they edited the video somehow to make it look like he ate 28 Krystals in 2. j/k. Joey is just the man. Watch out Takeru. You have been and will always be amazing, but you now have some real competition. But you already know that.
Last year in the 8-minute Krystal Championship in Chattanooga I struggled a lot as a rookie and only ate 23 I think. I got off to a bad start and never picked up the pace. I think I only ate about 9 Krystals in the first 2 minutes in that contest. God willing I will do much better this year. Only He knows what will happen, I just have to do the best I can. We shall see. I will keep you posted.

5th (94) - Erik "The Red" Denmark

I know there were a few other aspiring eaters and fans I would like to mention. Loui, Kevin, Franklin and last but not least the Nisei queen and court. I believe that Loui actually did around 90 and I know there were some others that did ok too. As usual it was fun getting to meet new people on the road who have the same love of food and competition that I do. Please let me know if I forgot anyone and I will update my post.

Thanks for the pics Franklin.

First blog

This is my first blog. I really don't have a clue how all this works. Today I am basically testing this all out to get familiar with it. Hopefully I will master all of this technilogical stuff soon and be up and running.
