Wanted: wing kings

The Nathan's hot dog competition may only be a distant memory, but get ready for more competitive eating action in Coney Island.

This Saturday, the Atomic Wings Buffalo Wing Eating Contest returns, an all-you-can-eat smackdown of, that's right, buffalo wings.

Sean Lennon looks to reclaim his title, after taking the crown of wing king last year with 37 wings.

"I'm the food gangster," said the Sheepshead Bay resident, who's been practicing for the big competition by chewing gum for up to four hours a day to strengthen his jaw and dining twice a week at Atomic Wings (he's currently at 42 wings in seven minutes). "I challenge everybody who reads this newspaper to come down and attempt to take my title, because I'm the wing king of New York."

Think you've got it in you? Sign-up for the contest is from noon-2:30 pm this Saturday at the Atomic Wings booth in the center of Stillwell Avenue between Surf Avenue and the Boardwalk. Ten competitions will be picked for the competition, which goes down at 4:15 pm.
