OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City was the scene of a huge contest Thursday night, and no, it had nothing to do with our beloved Thunder. It was a chicken wing eating contest that many of the contenders take very seriously. 

This Hooters is one of 10 spots around the country where, on Thursday night, professional competitive eaters were vying for a spot in the Hooters Wing-Eating World Championship in New York City in July.

It's another example of the rising popularity of competitive eating.
