Hot Dog Eating Contest

Right now we’re watching the annual International Hot Dog-Eating Contest sponsored by Nathan’s and shown on ESPN. It’s a little digusting (alright, really disgusting), but I think it’s hilarious. The announcers are describing the action like it’s a real sport! They mentioned how this was a “rebuilding year” for one of the guys, and how “reversals” (i.e. throwing up) weren’t allowed. It’s great!

Sadly, as I’m writing this, the 12 minute event has ended. Four-time winner Takeru Kobayashi took the title again, managing to put down 49 hot dogs (and buns) in that time.

Well, that was fun. Now back to OLN for the Tour de France. Have a happy 4th of July everyone!
