Joey Chestnut Wins Fifth Straight Hot Dog Eating Contest

Joey Chestnut is simply a man among boys when it comes to competitive eating.  Chestnut won his fifth straight hot dog eating contest on Coney Island.  Was it a hollow title though?

Joey Chestnut gobbled up 62 hot dogs in only 10 minutes to capture his fifth consecutive July 4th hot dog eating contest.  He beat second-place finisher Pat Bertoletti by nine dogs.

Chestnut’s main competition, Takeru Kobayashi, did not take part in the annual Nathan’s International Hot Dog Eating Contest though.  Kobayashi refuses to sign an exclusive contract with Major League Eating.  He unofficially ate 69 hot dogs on a Manhattan rooftop.  Chestnut essentially had to make a layup against the lackluster field in this year’s competition considering the absence of Kobayashi.

Okay, I just broke down a hot dog contest.  And seriously, Major League Eating?  Really?  This is just too much.  Being able to eat over 60 hot dogs in 10 minutes is crazy.  That’s averaging over six hot dogs in one minute.  That’s unbelievable, but I can’t take this stuff too seriously.  It’s time for me to hit up a cookout and regain some perspective.
