    I watched this live the other day. I though I was going to puke. It really was discussing. He broke them in half, soaked them in his drink, and practically swallowed them whole. :eek:

    Sonya the Black-widow was only about 100 pounds and she ate 37.

    I love me some hot dogs...not that many though. And they have to be GOOD hot dogs...Nathan's or something like that. With spicy mustard. And sauerkraut...it's not a hot dog without sauerkraut.

    I could eat three in one sitting if I was REALLY hungry. 49...that's insane.

    that's so nasty... i've eaten one hot dog in the past half decade, I was so hungry I thought I'd die, and it was the only thing in the house. there wasn't enough ketchup to drown the taste of rendering, but after a long battle, i managed to keep it down. but it won't happen again. i'd rather eat scraps off the floor... because then at least i know they're from my floor, instead of a slaughterhouse floor :)

    I watched the contest on ESPN yesterday(?)...also watched it last year so maybe it's becoming a tradition :rolleyes:

    What I was thinking as I flipped between the hot dog eating championship and the world Scrabble championship (on ESPN2) is what the sports commentators think when they get assignments like these...it AMAZED me that they could keep a straight face while talking about the different hot dog eating "techniques" and the skills each competitor brought to the contest. "The big story of today is rookie Joey Chestnut, who gave an impressive performance and came in third place after eating 32 hot dogs"...also, this year featured the "helmet cam" debut where one of the competitors wore a hat with a camera and mirror on it so the viewers could get an eaters-eye view of the contest. Thank you, ESPN!! :D

    Tradition? It said this was his fifth consecutive title. Sounds like it already became a tradition. And for further knowledge its been going on since 1916 at Coney Island on the 4th of July.

    I don't eat that many hot dogs in a whole year. That's just hard to imagine.

    If I tried to eat that many hotdogs in 12 minutes, you'd be able to enter me in the projectile vomiting contest that follows.

    I haven't had a hot dog in years. Never really like the taste anyway. Now that I realize the health issues, happy that I've stopped.

    An 8-pack of Nathan's weighs 1 pound, which means 49 weighed about 6 pounds. Add in the buns/water for another couple of pounds, and you're probably somewhat under 10 pounds total.

    I like Hot Dogs, but not enough to eat more than 3 of them in one day. I eat them both in buns and sliced with ketchup to dip them in.

    If you're ever in Chicago you MUST go here.

    Hot Doug's

    Doug has been written up in the New York Times, Gourmet Magazine, Punk Planet, etc. He went to Kendall College (a fine culinary school) only to graduate and open a hot dog stand. They have "the finest in encased meats," and always have specialty sausages (alligator, duck, etc) on the menu. Don't miss out on Fridays and Saturdays when they cook their fries in duck fat - mmmmmm extra rich flavor yet light and crispy.

    Their regular dogs are only $1.50 and their specialty items cost a bit more but boy are they worth it. Man, can you tell it's lunchtime here?

    Today's specials at Hot Doug's...

    The Game of the Week
    Cherry Ostrich Sausage with Apricot-Orange Mustard Cream and Chopped Smoked Almonds $6.00

    The Joanie Weston (Today's Celebrity Sausage)
    Apple and Gouda Chicken Sausage with Honey-Dijon Mustard and Dried Blueberries $5.50
