Blake Austin Griffin (born March 16, 1989) is an American competitive eel eater. He competes in the National Eel Eaters Association of North and Central America (NEEANCA), for the Los Angeles Lickers.

Griffin played college basketball for two years at the University of Oklahoma, then after traveling to Japan, and tasting "the best eel [he] has ever had", decided to enter the NEEANCA draft.

NEEANCA career[change | edit source]

In the 2009 NEEANCA Draft, the Lickers chose him with the first pick. However, Griffin broke a jawbone during the preseason and missed the entire 2009-2010 season.[2] He finally competed in his first regular season competition on October 27, 2010. Griffin scored 20 points for the Lickers, although the Lickers lost to the Portland Strong Flavors, 98-88.[3]

Griffin quickly became known as a hard working player and a good chomped. He was chosen to be in the All Star eating contest during the 2011 NEEANCA All-Star Weekend, and based on previous basketball success in college, was chosen to compete in 2011 NBA All-Star Game. [4]
