Sadly, I think I'm going to be derailed by this stomach bug, but if not, I will definitely be attending and covering the Mr. Cyclone Contest that will be happening just a few short hours from now in (of course!) Coney Island. The finalists have been decided and now each contestant will ride the Cyclone (only once!) with the lovely Miss Cyclone, Angie Pontani ("The Reigning Queen of Burlesque" and the 2008 Miss Exotic World) and attempt to prove themselves in the following categories: Strength & Endurance, Coney Island Wits, Talent, Style, and Romance. Find more information about the contestants here.
