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.

Instant Replay: Marlins 11, Phillies 1

BOX SCORE

MIAMI — The Phillies came within one out of being shut out for the second time in as many games in an embarrassing 11-1 loss to the Miami Marlins on Wednesday afternoon.

The Marlins roughed up Zach Eflin, who fell to 3-4 on the season.

The Marlins beat the Phils, 5-0, Tuesday night. A garbage-time RBI double by Cesar Hernandez with two outs in the ninth prevented the Phils from being shut out in consecutive games for the first time since July 8-9, 2015, when Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke got the wins at Dodger Stadium.

The Phillies are 4-9 in 13 games since the All-Star break. They are averaging just 2.6 runs in those games.

The Marlins are 55-46. They entered the day in second place in the NL East, four games behind Washington.

Starting pitching report
Eflin had pitched brilliantly in the month of July — he entered with a 1.80 ERA in four starts this month — but his success ended as the Marlins tagged him for nine hits, including a homer and two triples, and seven runs in five-plus innings.

Eflin had pitched a three-hit shutout at Pittsburgh in his previous start.

Lefty Adam Conley pitched 6⅔ shutout innings, scattered eight hits, walked three and struck out six. He pitched out of bases-loaded trouble twice.

Bullpen report
Andrew Bailey struggled. He faced three batters and gave up two hits, a walk and a run before Brett Oberholtzer cleaned up the sixth inning.

The Marlins eventually got to Oberholtzer for three runs in the eighth. The lefty picked up three innings to protect the bullpen.

At the plate
The Phillies did have 10 hits in the game, but they left the bases loaded twice and stranded 11 runners in all.

The Phils went 2 for 21 with runners in scoring position in the three-game series.

The Marlins got to Eflin early. They scored three runs in the first inning. The rally was highlighted by Giancarlo Stanton’s 22nd homer, a two-run laser beam to left that exited the bat at 112 miles per hour.

Don Kelly had a pair of triples against Eflin and scored two runs. One of the triples drove in two runs.

The Marlins had 16 hits.

Ejected
Bench coach Larry Bowa got the boot for arguing a called third strike on Cameron Rupp in the fourth inning.

Health check
Peter Bourjos' injured right shoulder could send him to the disabled list Thursday as the Phillies make room for Aaron Altherr.

Up next
The Phillies open a four-game series in Atlanta on Thursday night. Here are the pitching matchups:

Thursday night — RHP Aaron Nola (5-9, 4.75) vs. RHP Matt Wisler (4-10, 4.92)

Friday night — RHP Vince Velasquez (8-2, 3.34) vs. RHP Tyrell Jenkins (0-2, 6.17)

Saturday night — RHP Jeremy Hellickson (7-7, 3.65) vs. RHP Julio Teheran (3-8, 2.71)

Sunday afternoon — RHP Jerad Eickhoff (6-12, 3.83) vs. RHP Lucas Harrell (2-2, 3.38)

Phillies minor leaguer makes amazing catch robbing a home run while crashing into the wall

Phillies minor leaguer makes amazing catch robbing a home run while crashing into the wall

This is a good baseball catch.

It took place on Saturday night when the Hickory Crawdads' Tyler Sanchez belted a ball with men on base but was robbed by Lakewood BlueClaws outfielder Zack Coppola.

It certainly saved a few runs in the first inning but the Crawdads would find other ways to score, topping the BlueClaws by a final of 3-2.

Coppola's Great Grab

The "Web Gem" of the BlueClaws last homestand was made by Zach Coppola on this catch in the first inning on Saturday night."

Video of Marcus Vick running from the cops, getting captured at gunpoint is bonkers

Video of Marcus Vick running from the cops, getting captured at gunpoint is bonkers

You have to give Marcus Vick credit, he still has that breakaway speed. But it's not exactly "getaway" speed as he demonstrated in his failed attempt to elude police in an incident that took place back in April. 

TMZ posted video of Vick's attempt to elude the law on Tuesday. Here's how the Washington Post described the incident back in April:

The incident occurred at Onelife Fitness when a police officer tried to arrest him on an outstanding contempt of court charge in Montgomery County, Va., and Vick ran, according to the police report obtained by WAVY.com, damaging a door as he did so. As the officer tried to grab him, Vick pushed him and, after a brief chase on foot, he was taken into custody. Online arrest records originally indicated that he was charged with a hate crime, but Newport News Police spokesman Lou Thurston told WAVY that was an error.

Vick, 32, was charged with one count each of resisting arrest, obstruction of justice, destruction of property and felony assault on a law enforcement officer. 

The video ends with Vick on the ground and the police officer whose camera caught the whole chase with his weapon drawn and pointed at Vick. Scary and strange stuff for the brother of former Eagles quarterback Mike Vick.

TMZ posted the video on the same day that Vick accused former Eagles running back LeSean McCoy of giving his "baby mamma" herpes.
