Buffalo, N.Y. (WBEN) - WBEN's John Zach and Tony Caligiuri were among 21 local media personalities to participate in the meatball eating contest held at Chef's Restaurant. The contest was held to mark the 90th anniversary of the landmark restaurant.
With a lot of "smack" talk leading up to the competition, Tony edged out John by eating six meatballs. John ate only four meatballs! The winner of the competition, Carl Russo from 97 Rock, ate 11 meatballs in 90-seconds.
The meatballs in the competition were 1 ounce, not the usual 2 ounce meatballs served on a daily basis.
