25 contests already this year! That's awesome man. Just think, if you were still with the IFOCEMLE and playing by their rules, you might have only competed in two contests so far.

Let's see, 25 fun contests in the general vicinity of where I live or 2 contests that I might have to travel to in which I know I have no shot in hell of winning. That's a no brainer!

Yeah man, I really don't get why anyone but the top ranked eaters would be bitches of the IFOCE!! Maybe they're republicans!!

To be honest -- and I know this applied to me for a period of time -- I think some guys are a little embarrassed to be a "competitive eater" and being a part of a "professional" organization like the IFOCE helps legitimize their quirky hobby a little bit.

Competing in small, local contests makes them realize how goofy their hobby really is. It feels more like a sideshow spectacle at that level than it does up on the big IFOCE stage. But if you can come to terms with being a part of the spectacle and embrace it (and not give a fuck with anyone thinks about it), you won't need to be a member of the IFOCE in order to enjoy scarfing down chicken wings and hot dogs for fun.
