Wow! I ordered a shrimp PLATTER ($14) and got 8 barely-quarter-sized shrimp that made just 2 tacos with the provided tortillas. That's 2 tacos at $7 each. (For those of you who think that's a deal, I've got a bridge to sell you.) I don't know of these are locally-sourced shrimp or not, but if they are, I didn't expect to be the only person paying for the shrimper to make his living — or maybe it's that Taco Boy doesn't feel the need to make their takeout orders worth it and have their customers return. I'll certainly never go there (or take out) again. [Footnote: I also got rice and black beans with the platter; however, flavor must have been an upgrade option on the menu that I missed seeing when ordering.]
Oh, you mean that there are no adults playing this "game" professionally, only college and high school students? My mistake, I thought you meant that this was a sport for big boys and girls.
1) To be recognized as a real "sport," you must actually be recognized as such by more than just yourselves and your friends. Even competitive eating [and I am not saying whether it is or isn't a sport] has a federation overseeing a multitude of different eating competitions.
2) Just because you were on ESPN, it doesn't make you legit. ESPN also goes as far as airing people chasing logs down steep hills in foreign countries during the off season.
3) Being No.12 in the world doesn't necessarily mean anything when there are only a small handful of groups in the "world" doing the same thing as you. There are a lot of folks who rode the same bus to work today as I did, and I don't think we considered ourselves a team or a sport.
You guys do realize that you're not really flying, right?
