This is Patrick Philbin AKA Pat From Moonachie. He's a fan turned friend of the Opie and Anthony Show on The Virus (Sirius 105, XM 206 6-10am weekdays), and over the past few years has gotten involved in the ever expanding world of competitive eating, and as recently as this year chowed down at the world famous Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. He didn't win (who can against Joey Chestnut?) but we Virus fans are proud of our Pat.
He's a very funny guy (if you didn't know that already), and after having met and talked to him a little at Molly's Cupcakes (in New York), he's also really nice (dare I say "sweet," considering we were at a cupcake place. Or is calling a diabetic "sweet" in poor taste?) — but that didn't come as a surprise. He's a good guy all around (no pun intended, I swear. Okay, maybe a little).
PS: Thanks for the retweets, Pat!
