    Based on that information from his profile, I'd have to say its probably not him. It is definitely possible, I suppose.

    Heh...Eric might not have been on CNN, but I know Dave Siff was on there on the Fourth of July in a cracker eating contest.

    Unfortunately, Dave let bass players AROUND THE WORLD down when he LOST. :rolleyes:


    What a loser. ;) :D :bassist:

    Damn crackers.

















    Sorry, that just slipped out. :D I really love crackers, I do. Especially Triscuits. Do those count as crackers? If there was a contest for eating those, I would totally win.

    I dunno bassmonkeee, Dave is notorious for having eyes bigger than his stomach...

    ...need I remind you of the infamous "Fuji" episode?

    As for "taking a dive", I hear it was an inside job.
