100708pizza1.jpgThe eyes of the Competitive Eating world (all two dozen of them) will be fixed on Times Square this Sunday for the first-ever World Pizza Eating Championship, set to kick off sometime between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Military Island. Trumpet flourish! Competitors will include Joey "Jaws" Chestnut, the 2008 Hot Dog Eating Champion; Patrick "Deep Dish" Bertoletti, "a mohawked chef from Chicago" (according to the press release; Tim "Eater X" Janus, the 4th-ranked burrito champ; and his roommate, Crazy Legs Conti. Victory Sunday (and a cut of $14,000 in prizes) will go to whoever forces down the most slices of Famous Famiglia pizza—but save your snobbish wisecracks about that chain's dubious quality; we all know how excited you'd get whenever the office would buy Famiglia for everybody, back in the Gilded Age when such breathtaking extravagance was the norm.
