Well, I'm never eating again. Had an awesome turnout for our first Mark vs. Food feature. Many, many thanks to Jared Lorenzen, Patrick Towles and Will Chambers. Also, Raniero's Pizzeria for opening up on a day they are normally closed, and welcoming us so warmly. Also, to BW3's who also gave 10% of their sales to The Brighton Center. Can't wait until the new place opens up next door.
The official results of Mark vs Food are as follows:
- Both teams lost to the pizza, as we could not best the 24 inch pie in the 10 minutes allotted.
- There is now a picture of Will, Jared, Patrick and I on the Wall of Shame.
- In an upset of stunning proportions, however, Will and I ate 4 more ounces of pizza that the HHS/UK QB duo.
I'll take it.
We should hear the totals that we were able to raise for The Brighton Center within the week, and we will be posting some interviews that we were able to get soon as well. But as I sit here, sipping on a Pepto bottle through a straw, listening (yes listening) to my lunch being digested, I'll post some links from other media outlets that were able to make it.
Thanks again to everyone who helped spread the word: 700 WLW, Channels 5, 9, 12 and 19, The Community Press/Recorder, Nky Spot, sbnation.com, Kentuckysportsradio.com, Lance McAllister and countless of my friends and family. It was awesome and I can't wait to do it again.
