FRIDAY    |  SPORTSRADIO 94 WIP’S WING BOWL XX 

FEBRUARY 3, 2012, FRIDAY.  SportsRadio 94 WIP‘s Wing Bowl XX at the Wells Fargo Center. Contained, organized (almost irresistible visual) madness!  The Wing Bowl is a desert if you don’t drink beer just about everyone in attendance has or is imbibing on the stuff and is in full revelry mode; All 20,000+ people.

This year I did not work in the pit (where the primary focus is) I pretty much stayed in the lobby photographing The Green Legion’s Calendar Girls, but even in the halls and lobbies you can feel the festivity, jollity, merriment and gaiety of the Wing Bowl.

Kobayashi kicked butt this year shattering all previous Wing Bowl records by “downing” 336 chicken wings; amazing what this skinny guy can do.  Kobayashi won $20,000 for this feat; this was his first competition at the Wing Bowl.

People tailgate for this event they begin queuing outside the perimeter of the stadium around 2:00am (doors opens at 5:00am) and it’s like a sports event with 20 somethings and scantily-clad “Wingettes“, all the Gentilemen Clubs’ Wingettes in Philadelphia, and all kinds of flamboyant local characters; you gotta see it.  AND, after this event there are parties ALL over town starting at 11:00am… simply amazing.
