The Salem Avalance (in Salem, Virginia), an Advanced Class-A baseball team will be holding a “Salute to Ramen Noodles Night” on April 18th at their home game against Lynchburg. The first 1000 fans get a free packet of ramen and you can also get $1 off your ticket if you bring ramen to donate to the local food bank. I think they should add a ramen eating contest, even with dry noodles it would be fun to watch. When I was about 10, I entered a hot-dog eating contest at a Charleston Wheelers game. I haven’t been able to eat a hot-dog since and its been 20 years.
