BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) - Sonya Thomas is a champ when it comes to eating. She loves to do it and she is very good at it. The Alexandria resident proved it again, winning the wing-eating championship at the National Buffalo Wing Festival in, where else, Buffalo, New York on Saturday. The competitive eater wolfed down 173 wings in 12 minutes. That's a new record for the holiday gathering. Thomas also holds the old one. And unlike most of her rivals, she's no beefy chowhound. The 40-year-old weighs just 105 pounds. But she's known in competition as "The Black Widow." Among her other eating achievements: 250 Tater Tots in five minutes, 37 hot dogs in 12 minutes, 11 pounds of cheesecake in nine minutes, and she once scarfed down 44 lobsters in 12 minutes.
