Patrick Philbin (no relation to Regis) has become an ambassador for the sport of competitive eating.
A born statesman, he recently attempted to establish a sister-city relationship between Moonachie, New Jersey, and Little Rock, Arkansas. He hoped that competitive eating could be used as a vehicle to promote economic activity in both locations.
Despite his failure to attract support for this campaign, he remains a committed eater and hopes one day to win the Nathan's contest.
It appeared to many that Philbin had the characteristics of a Hall of Famer. His image, sadly, was sullied when, during a recent New York City morning show, he placed sliced turkey on his head.
On a personal note, Philbin calls himself "Pat from Moonachie," and as a result, many people call him "Pat from Moonachie."
