CHARLESTON, S.C. - Charleston RiverDogs radio
play-by-play man Danny Reed has long had an affinity for fare of all kinds. Now
he'll get all that he can handle.
The RiverDogs excitable announcer has agreed to
participate in the Gilroy's Slammer Pizza Challenge presented by Gilroy's Pizza
Pub on King Street in downtown Charleston on June 8.
As part of the promotion, Reed will be accepting applications to join
him in this ultimate pizza trek. Fans are encouraged to log on to the RiverDogs'
Facebook page and www.riverdogs.com for
further information and to fill out an application form telling why they would
be the perfect pizza partner in this odyssey. Deadline to submit an application
form is May 23.
Reed will hand pick his partner to join him for the
challenge and split the cash prize if the challenge is successfully completed.
Even if the team does not dust off the delectable dish, the lucky person will
still join Reed during a RiverDogs home radio broadcast later in the
"I've wanted to do a food challenge for a long time, and
this seemed like a great idea," said Reed. "Not only am I getting to enjoy some
of the best pizza in the Lowcountry, but the chance to give Gilroy's some added
exposure is an awesome opportunity."
In the ilk of a Man vs. Food challenge, this gluttonous
pizza quest features a team of two people attempting to polish off a 28-inch
Gilroy's pizza with five toppings of the team's choosing, which can weigh in
excess of seven pounds.
If the super pie is demolished in less than one hour, a
$500 cash prize is awarded.
