MY FANTASY COMPETITIVE EATING TEAM IS GOING TO WIN ME LOTS OF FANTASY MONEY THIS YEAR

This year's fantasy competitive eating league is up and running strong thanks to Liz Kellermeyer and the gang. The teams have been drafted and yours truly is captain of The Hungry Hooligans (working title for now). Here's this year's winning squad:

Patrick Bertoletti (3)
Chip Simpson (6)
Arturo Rios, Jr. (9)
Frank Wach (18)
Jim Hamrick (19)
Chris Abatsas (20)
Jim Reeves (28)
El Toro Jimenez (32)
Paul Barlow (35) - Pending a trade, may be replaced by Mongo Marquez (unranked)
Kevin Ross (unranked)

I'm pretty happy with my team overall. Three top 10 ranked eaters (only Steakbellie's line-up can boast the same). Marquez and Ross are unranked, but have tons of potential and passion and are poised to have breakout rookie seasons on the circuit. Each team (there are five, captained by different eaters) will accrue points based on the IFOCE's new points system. Should be fun and I look forward to kicking some fantasy ass.

I like the name hungry hooligans. I actually use the word hooligan on a regular basis and that was on the maybe list for my nickname (which I still haven't decided on).

I'm writing from the Dr. Keith Ablow show in NYC, a nationally syndicated talk show produced for FOX. We will be doing a show about competitive eating on Feb. 20th. We'd like to feature a fan who idolizes Ed "Cookie" Jarvis or Tim Janus along with others, who'd like to start competiting in the sport. If anyone is interested please email me at:
