Apparently it’s a tradition of which I remained blissfully unaware until today – Nathan’s sponsors a hot dog eating contest at Coney Island every Fourth of July. I’m staying at my sister’s house this week, and my brother-in-law recorded this historic event so he could watch tonight, since we would be busy when it aired. He just played the entire 10-minute contest on fast forward.
Downside: Warp-speed nausea on my part. I was near to vicarious vomiting.
Upside: It was over in less time than it took me to write this.
