Cherry Pit Spitting Champions

Cherry Pit Spitting Champions

Congratulations to Nelson (pictured above with his sons) with a 39-foot spit and Anthony with a 15-foot 1-inch shot, making them the Cortelyou Greenmarket’s Cherry Pit Spitting champions!

Nelson reclaims his title after having been ousted by a rogue spitter last summer, who Market Manager Samantha Blatteis believes just happened to be passing by during last year’s competition–in the right place at the right time, apparently.

I didn’t happen to stop by during the champions’ spits, but I did catch a couple of very excellent attempts.

A cherry pit spitter so animated, he had to be a gif:
