6th Annual Bison Sports Media Wing Off (VIDEO)

Local media personalities and Bison football athletes stuffed their faces Wednesday in the 6th Bison Sports Media Wing Off at Smitty’s Restaurant and Lounge on Pembina Highway.


Derek Taylor of the “Fox Soccer Report” was the champion last year with 31 wings, but had his work cut out for him against Michael Elves of 101.5 UMFM. In the end, both men managed to set a tie after five minutes to force sudden death. An additional two minutes was added to the clock after a short delay and the competition was back on. Elves came away with packing 58 wings in total. Wow!

Official wing count:

  • Derek Taylor –- “Fox Soccer Report” (38 wings + 16 more in OT)
  • Russ Hobson –- Global TV (36 wings)
  • Jay — CURVE 94.3 (34 wings)
  • Tyler Fabbri — Bison Football (34 wings)
  • Michael Byfield –- Shaw TV (31 wings)
  • Mitch Rosset — Global TV (29 wings)

    That’s a LOT of wings! Did they all purge after that?

  • Derek Taylor

    No purging allowed. Okay, one of the football players did after the contest in the second year. But he was training to be in the CFL, so that is excusable.

    I think the video accurately depicts how gross we all felt afterward. As ill as it makes you as you watch it, that’s what my gut is doing 6 hours after.

    Michael Elves is the new king!
