Pizza Blog: Seth Mazow's 'Year of the Pizza'

Speaking of Home Slice Pizza in Austin, Texas, I just realized that I'd never really given proper attention to the blog Year of the Pizza here on Slice. It was started last year by Seth Mazow after he worn a contest at Home Slice. He outlasted three other people in keeping his hands on a sub sandwich. For that, he won a year of free pizza at the pizzeria. Anytime he walked through the door, he was entitled to a large pizza with unlimited toppings.

Q: Have you gained weight?
A: Not yet. I weighed myself just after I won and I weighed in at 160 lbs. We'll see where I end up.

Q: Has the magic worn off?
A: Nope! Every time I walk in I feel like Rocky ascending the steps. Sometimes I even raise my fists like him and sing the theme song in my head. Seeing the bill with the pizza charge and the add-topping line items all deducted definitely never gets old.

Well, back in early December 2009, Mazow and his fiancée, Erin Mohr, won the contest again. So we'll have at least another year of YotP.
