This is the annual story that I have to eat a roll of Tums before even writing it! The Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest was held on July 4th in Coney Island ,N.Y. as tradition dictates. Joey “Jaws” Chestnut put down 70 hot dogs in 10 minutes, beating challenger Matt “Megatoad” Stonie by a whopping 17 hot dogs. Joey was upset by Stonie last year, after 8 consecutive years of winning, and he wasn’t going to let it happen again.
See for yourself.
