PHILADELPHIA — Chicago’s Patrick Bertoletti won Philadelphia’s Wing Bowl eating contest with a record 444 wings in 26 minutes.

He edged 2014 champion Molly Schuyler, of Nebraska, who eclipsed her record 363-wing mark with 440 wings.

Professional wrestling star Mick Foley was ejected from Wing Bowl after stuffing uneaten chicken wings into a fanny pack in an attempt to increase his total.

People following Friday’s event on social media dubbed Foley’s antics “inflate gate,” a play on the Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots’ deflated football controversy.

Wing Bowl started in 1993 as a way for Philadelphia’s long-suffering sports fans to blow off steam before the Super Bowl.

About 20,000 people gathered at the Wells Fargo Center to drink beer and watch scantily clad women serve competitors wings.
