Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest! It rocks! This has become a tradition in our home. Last year we watched Joey Chestnut win the title for the United States by beating out Takeru Kobayashi of Nagano, Japan in a five-dog overtime after both ate 59 Nathan’s Famous hot dogs and buns in the 10-minute regulation match. It was truly awesome! It will be on ESPN on July 4th at 12 pm EST. Can Joey hold on to the title? For more information, you can go to:
