Yesterday's Hot Dog Contest

For the past few years, I've been aware of the hot dog eating contest that takes place in the USA. I've heard all about the champ - Joey Chestnut - so decided to check it all out yesterday.

I watched the contest. All I can think of are three words.

Only. In. America.

ESPN ran the thing like it was a proper sporting event with stats and commentators calling the action.

Chestnut won once again. This time he ate seventy-two hot dogs. In ten minutes.

Yes, you read that right. In TEN MINUTES!

I struggle eating ONE, so cannot imagine how the competitors felt trying their best to eat the most in ten minutes. 

Crazy stuff.
