2008 Gyoza Eating Championship

I thought my friend's boyfriend was going to be in a relatively silly and casual gyoza eating championship at the Los Angeles Little Tokyo Nisei Week Japanese Festival. When we got there, my friends and I were stunned to see that he was part of a little amateur side show for a serious(ly insanely awesome) Major League Eating contest.

And yeah: Joey Chestnut was there. More importantly, he totally rocked the rest of the competition (which included awesome old man Rich "The Locust" Lefevre and Miki "the waxer from The 40 Year Old Virgin" Mia) and broke his own 2006 world record by eating 231 gyoza in 10 minutes.

Videos of the contest (including slow motion footage) after the jump...



I've also got pictures on my flickr. Gotta say, this Casio EX-F1 is a really interesting camera. Pretty capable (and it better be for $1000 USD!), but it still has so many of the problems that plague cheap digicams, including long shutter lag, poor shot-to-shot times, and a decent amount of menu surfing. Also, 6 megapixels really isn't great compared to either my point & shoot Fujifilm Finepix F50 or my Pentax K20D. I should be posting my takes on these cameras over the next few weeks. Hopefully. Eventually. Yeah.


Also, I'm pretty certain I could have hit 100 gyoza.
