There was a repeat winner in an annual matzah-ball eating contest in New York. Eric Badlands Booker won Tuesdays contest at Bens Deli by scarfing more than 20 matzah balls in 5 minutes, 25 seconds. Booker is 6-feet-5-inches tall and weighs 395 pounds. Proceeds from the event go to feed the hungry through the Interfaith Nutrition Network.
