On a gorgeous North Carolina day, your 2010 U.S. National Egg Toss Champions officially began practicing for the World Egg Throwing Championship. No, we don’t have a sponsor yet for Tossing For Hunger, but we do have a few positive leads.

Mike and I are admittedly somewhat rusty. Just ask Mike’s company truck, which took the brunt of a long, errant throw on my part. After that bad toss, we looked pretty good. Our final throw measured more than 90 feet, about 30 feet longer than our winning throw at last year’s national championship.

The best part about practice, however, is that we saved a few eggs. Which means I’m eating eggs for dinner. And breakfast, of course.
