ESPER DEFENDS SLOPPER CROWN!
It’s back! To Pueblo, CO, people! The 3rd Annual World Slopper Eating Championship awaits the brave and pure. Major League Eaters from near and far are warmly encouraged to sign up for the chance to compete in this magnificent event.
At last year’s championship, Geoffrey Esper, the #2-ranked eater in the world, ate 37.5 9oz sloppers to set a new world record in the discipline. Esper was relentless at the table on that day, a vision of rhythm. It was, they said, an almost zen-like display of control over the slopper.
When in Pueblo, CO, the slopper is not to be missed. This local delicacy features an open-faced cheeseburger lovingly smothered—slopped, more accurately—in delicious green chili. They are delicious and best enjoyed at a recreational pace and in appropriate civilian quanitities. Don't try to Esper at home. MLE officials will agree that the slopper pairs well with any moderately priced domestic lager, for those of age. Not an IPA or an amber ale or anything like that. Something cold, simple and easy to drink. Whatever granddad drank.
Do you have what it takes to challenge the greatest eaters in the world? Will you be the one to break Esper’s world record? If you are Geoff Esper and you are reading this, will you, sir, break your own record? And if so, what will that new record like? We know what it will taste like—it will taste of glory. This is The 2021 World Slopper Eating Championship! At the table or in the crowd—don't you ever miss it!
