Sorry, I just couldn’t resist commentary on THIS one. Today Matt and I were purusing the boob tube and naturally the 92nd annual Coney Island Hot Dog contest was in full swing.
Now, I get that this a ‘historical’ affair, but it’s getting out of hand. There is now an entire empire around professional eating and you can check it out at: www.majorleagueeating.com. How is it that a man who eats 72 hot dogs in 10 minutes ( a record, by the way) is an athelete? And we wonder why our culture is messed up?
Didn’t see the contest? Don’t worry, there is a Wii game on Major League Eating at home so you can virtually stuff your face and imagine the glory of being full of hot dogs, wings, or matzah balls.
Update: they just compared the legacy of the hot dog eaters with Mohammad Ali…..YIKES!!!??
