Philly Guy reported in a comment on the last post that WIP has accepted his Wing Bowl qualifying stunt. His feat? Twenty naked hot dogs (no buns) in 3 minutes and 25 seconds or less. No word on when he'll be on the air.

Three minutes, 25 seconds is an odd time. What, did they think 3:30 was just "way too easy"? Regardless, I'm pretty sure he can beat that time. I predict he'll get them down in 3:10. I also think it would be hardcore if, after he reached 20 dogs, he just keep eating right up until the 3:25 mark. Screw this "stopping when you've reached your goal" crap.

I've done 20 naked in under 2:00.

2005 (?) ESPN Radio 1250 Pittsburgh Dog Bowl.

I think he'll be able to do it easily.

I'll have more details once they call me back. I guess it has to go by legal. Al said 3:25 so I took what I could get. I'll keep everyone updated on it when I actually do it. Untill then I'm just staring at my phone hoping for it to ring already.

Keep up posted old man. If you make it, the UEPa-Haul will become the official Philly Guy party headquarters.

The only time I did naked hot dogs, and these were the easy as crap Oscar Myers, I did 10 in under a minute. I think Pete will definitely complete this one.

We've gotta get "Philly Guy" a better name.

That won't fly in the Big Bowl.
