Who cares about Wimbledon? Yawn. In a far more exciting, um, “sport,” American Joey Chestnut, once again, won the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest–his fourth title in a row. 54 hot dogs in 10 minutes for a $20,000 pay-off ain’t bad.
Missing from this year’s contest was Chestnut’s biggest rival, Takeru Kobayashi. Well, he was there. But while he didn’t compete, Kobayashi got arrested, after improperly taking the stage. On an interesting note, watch this “What’s in my Fridge?” video with Chestnut showing what he normally eats and the various Major League Eating contests he’s won. It’s kind of interesting. The guy is no tub of lard.
