PIZZA EATING CONTEST
The first annual Pavone Pizza Eating Contest is in the books (finally, after four reschedulings) and my three contest winning streak is over. Beau took the title by finishing his large pizza with sliced tomatoes before anyone else. I was half a slice behind (I chose mushrooms), followed by John (mushrooms) and Billy (onions - WTF?).
Beau checks out the goods.
Billy, Beau, me and John digging in. Yes, that's me using ranch dressing to give the crusts a little extra flavor. Overall, the first three slices didn't taste too bad. The last three slices tasted like crap. I don't remember the middle two.
Beau shows off his winning technique. We all got our pizzas cut traditionally (eight slices), while Beau asked for his cut in four slices. He then folded each quarter slice. I guess it worked.
Me considering my next move. I think it was "continue eating."

Beau basks in victory while I will myself to finish my pie.
Amazingly enough, I thought I wouldn't want to eat pizza again for at least two weeks, but my very next meal (lunch the next day) was two slices of cheese pizza. A full set of pictures can be seen here.
