Today, September 28, 2016, marks the beginning of what promises to be one of the most heralded and remarkable stories of our generation… It marks the beginning of Taylor’s run at his first solo Turkey Day Eating Championship.

This historic competition was born in an era where life was different – it was 2005… All our presidents had all been the same color. Everyone was able to get a mortgage for a $1 million home regardless of their income levels. And we had yet to see a full season out of Eli Manning, but we were rock hard with expectations…

Anyway, for those of you unknowing, the object of the “Taylor Family Eating Competition” is total weight gain. You weigh in whenever you would like on Thanksgiving, and you weigh out whenever you like. The main rule is that you must weigh out in the same conditions you weighed in (shoes must stay on/off, cell phone must stay in/out of your pocket, you need to use the same scale you weighed in on, etc).

As you can see, this competition has become a bit of a “thing” in the Taylor household… And this year, I want to invite you, our loyal Water Cooler Sports fans, along for the ride.

I’m going to keep you up-to-date with my training regiment and strategical approach as I look to capture my first solo championship (in 2009 and 2015 I have shared the title). And then, on the big day, I will keep you all posted live on Twitter with the results, live weigh-outs, any vomiting (to my knowledge has never occurred), etc.

Let’s do this together. Let’s strive for greatness. Let’s make a baby (possibly a 14+ pound baby that explodes out of me right after the weigh-out)!!
