Fourth of July Weekend, in Retrospect

Some of you spent the Fourth of July weekend watching Joey Chestnut win his third straight Coney Island hot dog eating title by eating 68 franks.

But you know we Sons of Steve Garvey are nerds, right? Well, over here at SoSG, we celebrated by watching other hot dog-eating pursuits, courtesy of Olivia Munn of G4.

We have a wiener. (Video after the jump.)

I went to see this contest in 2005 when Kobayashi won the last of his 6 titles. It was really gross.

EK, Kobayashi was widely speculated to have been juicing back in the 2000-2005 "stuffed sausage" era. If you look at the progression of his numbers over time, it's hard to deny that, at his age, he'd be at that level of hot-dog-eating production without some artifical help.

Chestnut, on the other hand, is the real deal. He's like the Albert Pujols of hot dog eating.
