By now you have heard all about the year’s most important “sporting” event that is being televised on ESPN today at 9 am EST. The annual Fourth of July event is the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest from New York’s Coney Island. The most important contestant this year is Japan’s Takeru Kobayashi. Kobayashi did NOT better his record of 53.5 hot dogs in 12 minutes last year. He only ate a paltry 49.
