[ # ] Joey Chestnut breaks his own record at Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest!
July 4th, 2016 under Sports figures


It is that time of year, when I find out what channel ESPN is on on my cable system. That’s because today is the annual Fourth of July Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest and it is what being American is all about. Each year 20 people try to down as many hot dogs as they can in 10 minutes and keep them down.
From 2007-2014, Joey Chestnut held that title and continued to break his own records. Then last year, Matt Stonie, who lives in the same town as him, beat him.
This year both men were back to battle it out and there could only be one winner. I guess last year’s loss really lit a fire in Chestnut’s belly because Stonie never stood a chance. Not only did Chestnut destroy his opponent by 17 wieners, he also beat his own record. He gobbled down 70 dogs in 10 minutes and I will not eat another one until July 3rd.
I don’t know how they do it. I can’t eat 70 of anything in 10 minutes and they do it like it is nothing. Thankfully these competitive eaters know how to do it because I love watching them every year.
But then again, I am still hoping for another contestant to throw up on live TV again. That was an awesome moment in television history.
I think that next year they should add another part to the challenge. After the 10 minutes are up, all the contestants need to ride the Cyclone at Coney Island. Whoever ate the most hot dogs and kept them down, is the winner. So it is a two part contest that will be both exciting and disgusting at the same time. Because you know as soon as one person loses his hot dogs, the rest will follow. How glorious would that be?
