Re: Welcome to the World of Competitive, Intercollegiate Meat Judging
...........and their parents are as proud of them as the parents of college softball players. Seriously this "sport" puts men and women on an equal footing (hoofdom?????), and most of the players can turn pro after graduation. As in diving or gymnastics, the scoring by judges must be watched to know how to best perform in front of them next time. It never caught on, but I faintly remember a contest where meat was judged, and then eaten and blind graded by normal people. While the meat judged best didn't always win, the judges were , over all, very good at picking the meat that would taste best, just by looking at it. Thanks for posting.....
