Bazooka bubbles!

Steve Russell - Staff Photographer

Its funny, I love to cover sports, well, competitive events.

I've covered the world Rock, Paper, Scissors competition, earlier this year I had the opportunity to cover a pizza eating competition and this weekend I added to my resume of the unusual with the Bazooka Blow-Off.

If you have a crazy competition going on, drop me an email, they seem to be my forte!

A stick of gum containing sugar has about 10 calories compared to sugarless gum which has only 6 calories. Contrary to popular belief, swallowing gum will not do any harm.
