with 60+ dogs
OT: Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest
and say 56 hot dogs.
banashing to Bolivia was impossible with the pos/negs disabled.
That kind of neg-bomb was impossible under the old system, too.
Luckily, Brain can obviously still "adjust" point totals when he needs to.
What happened to The Tsunami (nickname probably no longer appropriate)? Is he in it this year?
Did he get caught with a chicken breast?
he's not banned from nathan's, it's more like a contractual holdout. he won't sign with major league eating, so he can't compete.
when they grill out for dinner they have hot dogs?
(Insert requisite weiner in mouth joke here)
The headline on ESPN.com says "Swallow Hard" with a picture of Chestnut. Almost as good as "How deep it went..."
was impressive. It's good to see someone "challenge" Joey Chestnut. He's still the best though.
I didn't know there was going to be an open thread.
If you missed it.
Apparently Kobayashi had no contract but he competed at the exact same time from a different location and reportedly broke the world record with 69 in 10 minutes. Unofficial right now, but this is a very interesting development.
what's the explanation behind kobayashi's banishment from Nathan's contest?
I don't think it's that he is banned. They said he just hasn't signe the contract the past two years which makes it seem, to me at least, that it is more on hime than MLE
At their events, but he wants to compete worldwide because he makes big bucks in Asian competitions and appearances.
Pretty good hot dogs, but I don't think I could eat more than 10 at a time. Now, give me Dearborn Sausage, Winter's, Kowalski or Koegel's, (even Vienna Beef) I'd give those two a run for their money.
Oh, and you've got to go with natural casing hot dogs. That "snap" when you bite into them is tremendous.
But, no ketchup.
Professional eating.... My god.
Fall of Rome? Anyone? Anyone?
Yep, but instead of bread and circuses we've got hot dogs and Wrestlemania. Otherwise, it's accelerating decrepitude. "Idiocracy" was optimistic in being set 500 years in the future; I'd say it's no more than 75 years away.
Before I go to fireworks, I wanted to apologize for being a prick. Shouldn't go on a clearly marked thread if the topic is distasteful to you....So sorry to you eating fans.
So...I'm not the only one nauseated by these things? I don't think they ought to be banned or illegal. I just find them incredibly disturbing.
Joey Chesnut is the pride of the Bay Area!
must suck to be the bay area
The 2nd place guy in Nathan's wore a headband. The headband had HENDERSON written over it, a reference to Michigan alumni Randy and Jason Sklar's podcast.
So shoutout to Michigan alumni today, didn't notice it at first
Went to U-M's School of Public Health.
