Extremelely late Preakness results

preaknessThe Woodlawn Vase may be leaving the state, but one trophy is staying home.

The Undisputed Preakness Pony Pig Out National Eating Champ was Jay "Gormonster" Gorman of Baltimore, whom Baltimore Sun readers met in John-John Williams' March article about a sushi-eating competition at Ra.

Here are the results of Saturday's Great Preakness Pony Pig Out National Eating Championship. Competitors had to consume 3 pounds of horse themed foods (e.g., carrots, oatmeal, apples) in dessert form - 1.75 lbs. of carrot cake, 1 pound of oatmeal creamed cookies (12 total) and .425 lbs. of of apple turnover. Gorman ate all that in 4 minutes and 15 seconds.

The purse: 250 simoleans.

I love oatmeal creme pies.

I hate everything about eating contests.

I totally agree with you, Dahlink. What a way to strip all the pleasure out of eating.
