If this was a boxing match, the referee would have called the bout off. Was is most interesting, Phil doesn't recognize it yet. He still thinks he's in the fight.

Mr. Roger, the lady that relayed this story to me, a restaurateur, understands amateur competitions and finds it hard to be critical of anyone that competes in such events especially when they are for a good cause. However, two things that really bring out the critic in her are food safety and serving food with detectable flaws that should not be served. Let’s just say my comments were very kind compared to the ear load I received. Please pass the yellow mustard!
