Wing Bowl started in 1993 as a way to forget a particularly dismal Eagles season. A local radio station, WIP, decided to have a party anyway and the theme was two guys in a wing eating contest. Twenty plus years later? WIP Sports Radio Wing Bowl 21 is an event that sells out the Wells Fargo Center with over 30 highly competitive eaters, Wingettes, entourages and twenty thousand fans getting up at 5am, if not earlier, to take it all in at the Wells Fargo Center. Top eater and hottest Wingette receive prizes. And beginning in 2013, there is both a local and a national prize for eating.
