The Associated Press reports former NFL DL William Perry badly lost a cake-eating contest Tuesday, May 10, to 135-pound Richard LeFevre, a 61-year-old retired auditor from Henderson, Nevada. LeFevre devoured a 5-pound birthday cake in 11 minutes, 26 seconds to earn the title of "World Cake Eating Champion." Perry, known as "The Refrigerator" during his playing days, started strong but had eaten less than a quarter of his cake when LeFevre finished, and wound up in last place. It was Perry's first sanctioned event since a poor showing at a hot dog-eating contest in 2003.
