''Sports-they're more than an American past-time, they're a passion, a way of life. But what if you hate sports? What do you do when there's nothing to fill the void where baseball, basketball and football should be? Well you're in luck. The International Federation of Competitive Eating has heard your cries and created Major League Eating, a sport that takes the small town eating contest to a whole 'nother level. In fact, the IFCE has gone so far to legitimize gluttony, they've created a national circuit of eating competitions, which in turn has made rock stars of food-obsessed people with freakish metabolisms. Damn, I love America.
There's a video game version of every sport out there, so naturally, us competitive eating fans have been sitting here for some time thinking, "Where the heck is my Madden MLE?" Some of you might think this is the goofiest idea for a game possible but publisher Mastiff knew someone out there was fantasizing about bolting twenty pounds of shrimp in four minutes and so they created Major League Eating: The Game.''
