Dog Day

It's July 4th today. You know what that means.

For the past few years, I've woken up on America's Independence Day in my home - 3,438 miles away - and wondered 'is today one of those days when the GOAT is taken down?'

I am of course referring to Joey Chestnut who consistently wins Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest every July 4th.

He is currently on a 14-1 run since first winning the competition fifteen years ago today. His only loss, in those years, came in 2015.

As of this afternoon, I've seen one sportsbook offering 'The Field' as a 12/1 underdog to Chestnut. Good odds.

If you're looking for an upset, that is.
