Happy Independence Day! And with this day, comes another great tradition: Joey Chestnut dominating the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.
More importantly, Chestnut broke his own record and ate 69 hot dogs. It was amazing and this is exactly what America is all about. We celebrate great talent, even though the talent is just eating. That’s seven straight wins for Chestnut now.
What a great way to start the day. I’m proud of Chestnut. He has represented SJSU very well!
In about 10 minutes, Joey Chestnut will try to win the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest for the sixth time. I am really hoping he does it again.
Joey Chestnut attended SJSU and is one of the most famous people to come out of the school. (I guess that’s pretty awesome.) I don’t even care for competitive eating but because of Chestnut’s roots, it has caught my attention every year on Independence Day.
Can’t get more American than stuffing your face with hot dogs on a holiday!
