El Wingador Challenged To Eat-Off On Shoetooth Radio Show
Recently, Bill Simmons, known to the world as “El Wingador,” appeared on Mike Gilligan’s Shoetooth Radio Show on Wildfire Radio.
During the podcast, Simmons, along with Snow On The Barb Wire co-author Joe Vallee, discussed his book, future restaurant, his upcoming Wing Bowl challenge against defending Wing Bowl champion, Molly Schuyler, and more!
Simmons discussed with Gilligan the impact Snow On The Barb Wire has had on people going down a similar that as Simmons did, but decided to change their course after reading the book.
“I had a couple people reach out to me, and they read the book, and they saw the choices that I made in there, and they were kind of going down that same path,” Simmons said. “And they reached out to me and said, ‘Listen, we read what you went through and what you lost, and we couldn’t deal with anything that you’ve been through.’ The one guy as real sincere and said ‘I was dealing cocaine, I was dealing this, I have kids. I stopped. That book made me see the light. I did not want to, or could not go through what you went through, and I want to thank you.’ So right there made everything worth it for me, that somebody could read that and learn something, and feel what I felt, and what I went through—hell, you know? So that made it well worth it. So if you get this book, it’s definitely gripping.”
Perhaps the most exciting moment of the show, however, occurred when Gilligan challenged El Wingador to an eat-off against John Sullivan from Sullivan Strategic Accounting in Voorhees, New Jersey.
