Our own Norman Chad was one of the first people to write about the University of Maryland competitive eating team, which became the nation's first university-sanctioned chow club late last year. But there's a difference between writing about the sport from the safe haven of California, and actually getting your fingers dirty with real reporting. For the latter, you'll have to go to CSN Washington's Michael Jenkins.
Well done, Jenks. Just wish you could have scored an interview with the team's newly hired coach, the venerable Ralph Fri....nah, forget it.
