Stride Gum Offers Steve Wiebe Consolation Prize

Posted by Jon Wahlgren

Sometimes second place ain't so bad after all.

Even though Steve Wiebe didn't crack the DK record at E3, falling short a relatively measly 60,800 points below Billy Mitchell's whopping 1,050,200 score, he's still got something to show for it.

Stride Gum, who originally offered Wiebe $10,001 in quarters and a year's supply of their Uber Bubble gum as an incentive for smacking down the record, are sticking with him and throwing runner-up prizes his way: $2,500.25 in quarters, or 10,001 of them, and a year's supply of Uber Bubble, which he can chew as he plots and trains for his future revenge.

That's not all for Wiebe, oh no. Stride's offer stands through to the next E3, and if he can break the record at any public, Twin Galaxies-approved event in the meantime, well, he'll get the cash, glory and even more gum.

So much more gum.

I hope Steve can crack Billy's record. Billy is a real jerk. He won't even do a live contest with Steve. With Billy it's always behind closed doors. With Steve it's at E3 broadcast live.

I can't chew any gum other than stride now. It just lasts so long! Not only is this suck-up advertising, it's the truth.

I've tried chewing Stride, but every time I do I randomly get groin-shotted by rams. Needless to say, I stopped chewing Stride shortly afterwards.

I hope Steve breaks the record again. I just can't stand that Billy Mitchell. Never could. When you've got the skills, you don't need to go around telling everyone about it.

I sometimes think documentaries have slants, but some of the things Billy Mitchell said seemed pretty insecure. I want Billy Mitchell to start doing more live appearances. Until then, Steve will always be champ in my book.

I think Billy Mitchell ought to come out and do a live score, head-to-head with Steve. If he loses, then he gets to have Steve Wiebe spit some gum into his hair. That's justice.
