Today is Independence day which means we are treated with one of the most unique sporting events of the year, Nathans Annual Hot Dog Eating Contest. Who would have thought eating hot dogs could be so intense but this event has grown in popularity year after year, to the point they actually televise the contest now, with thousands of people showing up on Coney Island to watch how it all goes down. This year, once again Joey Chestnut was victorious with a record setting 74 dogs eaten in 10 minutes. Really though, it’s just fun to watch these people try their hardest to choke down all these dogs.
This last one is particularly frightening, it can’t feel nice to be in this event, put that much crap into your body… and lose.
