Photo Gallery: Wing Bowl 19 is In the Books as Super Squibb Eats a Lot

"I was kind of disappointed nobody puked."

One sentence overheard while walking out of Wing Bowl 19 kind of sums up the experience. They say it's the kind of thing you should do once in your life. And then you should go home and use some heavy duty Lava soap for a few hours to scrub off that feeling.

[watch the video here]

There are fat men, there are scantily clad women, there is beer, there is tailgating before 4:00 am. And this year there were porn stars like Ron Jeremy, Mary Carey, and Katie Morgan. And a really skinny asian man eating a cheesesteak in ridiculous time, only to flash his abs Situation-style after setting a new record.

People show up early, drink in the parking lot, drink in the Wells Fargo Center, see some half naked women, cheer for some fat dudes eating, then maybe they continue the party at a local strip joint once the party in South Philly is over.

"Where you going after this is over," one attendee asked one of the people putting on the event?

"I think I'm going to hell."

But probably to Delilah's first. [photo gallery below]

As for the final winner? Super Squibb outlasted El Wingador to win it by eating 255 chicken wings.

Perhaps the highlight (er, most interesting moment of the event?) of the morning was Kobayashi setting a new record by inhaling a cheesesteak in 24 seconds to demolish the old record. Numerous attendees in the crowd vowed to head directly to Pat's and Geno's following the completion of the event to challenge that number.

Outfits were both plentiful and almost nonexistent. Perhaps my favorite "costume" of the day was part of a float dubbed "Mound Rushmore" (more on that later) with a representative for each of the Phillies pitchers built into a mountain on a float. They also had a wingette wearing a uniform for each pitcher. Oswalt got confused and is kind of out in left field in this photo.

There were also a number of... "celebrity wingettes" (?) such as porn star Mary Carey who accompanied Damaging Doug who looked like he was going to spew a few times.

Mary was also there to console Doug when he was eliminated. Nice lady.

Did we mention there was a wing eating competition?

Katie Morgan.

Ron Jeremy performed the National Anthem on a kazoo. Talented man.

And just some LADIES OF WING BOWL:

And perhaps my favorite photo from Wing Bowl 19.

And they all lived drunkily ever after.

look for a video later...

Malcolm Jenkins is prepared for both a zombie apocalypse or Donald Trump as president

Malcolm Jenkins is prepared for both a zombie apocalypse or Donald Trump as president

A zombie apocalypse or Donald Trump becoming the President of the United States of America are both nightmare scenarios for many people. But Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins is prepared in the case of either.

At least that's what he says.

The Philadelphia Eagles have a bye this week, so Jenkins found the time to post the below video to Twitter, teaching us a little bit about his quirks.

"Something you might not know about me is that I'm a half-hearted doomsday prepper. For the last two or three years I've been silently preparing myself for a zombie apocalypse... or Donald Trump becoming President, whichever comes first. Communications, food, protection, everything, I've been stockpiling. I took a zombie survival course a couple of years ago," Jenkins said.

"Hopefully I won't have to use my skills."

 

Tonight's lineup: Tommy Joseph's last start of the year?

Tonight's lineup: Tommy Joseph's last start of the year?

Tommy Joseph, who has been missing from the lineup lately, starts at first base and bats fourth tonight.

Joseph will most likely be making his final start of the season with Ryan Howard expected to start the final games of the season. Joseph is batting just .235 against the Braves this season, but does have two home runs. The rookie first baseman has 21 home runs and 15 doubles in 104 games during his first season in the majors. 

Howard will be playing what are almost definitely his final games in a Phillies uniform this weekend vs. the Mets.

Maikel Franco bats fifth and plays third base. Franco, who has been hot lately, has three home runs and is batting .320 over his last 25 at-bats. He will look to continue his success against the Braves, as five of his 25 home runs this season have come against them.

Cameron Rupp gets a day off behind the plate and will be replaced by veteran catcher A.J. Ellis. Ellis has exceeded expectations in a short sample since coming over in the Carlos Ruiz trade last month. Ellis is 8 for 28 with a home run and nine RBIs in 10 games with the Phils. He's batting .285, which is astronomically better than his paltry .194 mark with the Dodgers. 

Part of the reason for Ellis' start could be his history against Braves starter Josh Collmenter. He is 4 for 11 with two home runs and four walks against the former Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher.

Here is tonight's lineup:

1. Cesar Hernandez, 2B
2. Freddy Galvis, SS
3. Odubel Herrera, CF
4. Tommy Joseph, 1B
5. Maikel Franco, 3B
6. Cody Asche, LF
7. A.J. Ellis, C
8. Aaron Altherr, RF
9. Jeremy Hellickson, P

And for the Braves:

1. Mallex Smith, CF
2. Dansby Swanson, SS
3. Freddie Freeman, 1B
4. Matt Kemp, LF
5. Nick Markakis, RF
6. Anthony Recker, C
7. Jace Peterson, 2B
8. Rio Ruiz, 3B
9. Josh Collmenter, P
