exactly three minutes and 14 seconds
to eat as much pie as they could.

'Five, four, pi, three, two, one,'
 Elkies counted down as the
contestants shoved the last
mouthful of pie

 From today's Harvard Crimson:

Harvard Math Department Pi Day event

Two members of the Harvard Class of 2007 "scarf down pie at the Math Department's 'pi'-eating contest at 3:14 p.m. yesterday in celebration of Pi Day. Participants had three minutes and 14 seconds to eat as much pie as posssible."
