TOP2010: Postgame with the judges

Here's a quick postgame discussion with the judges after this week's final of the 2010 Tournament of Pizza, sponsored by Sunmark Federal Credit Union. It's just a few minutes about the pizzas from Marino's and DeFazio's.

Thanks again to (from left to right above) Daniel B, Albany Jane, Renee and Joe for all the excellent judging and good times this year.

Update! An extended version of the discussion is posted after the jump. A few of the topics from the fun discussion: veggie pizzas, Pasquale's, Greg telling the judges they're crazy, and Joe maybe saying something his mom wouldn't want to hear.

Seriously, what's up with the Hello Kitty thing? Kinda lame.

Screw who has the best pizza - Albany Jane definitely has the best boots!

I still don't see how Hello Kitty can be a judge when she has no mouth. This whole contest is rigged.

I must admit, the page loaded, I saw the floating Hello Kitty over Albany Jane's face, and I truly did laugh-out-loud.

Well done, AoA...well done.

So who won? You mean to say I have to watch the video to find out?

@josie: Marino's won -- here are the results.
