Weiners Thursday

Joey hitting his stride.

“I slowed down quite a bit, and I was sweating like a mad dog,” Chestnut said after his tenth win in eleven years. “It was a great run, but I know I can do better. Next year if I come back you can bet I’ll be pushing harder.”

And still!

Matt Stonie, the only Nathan’s competitor to ever dethrone Chestnut, came in third this humid July 4th with 48 dogs. Second place went to number-three-ranked Carmen Cincotti who surpassed his 2016 total: 60 dogs, up from 42 last year.

    What a country! Competitive eating. Before you know it, the USA will want to make it an Olympics’ event.

    Truly disgusting. (IMO)

    When I saw that hot dog guy’s name yesterday, I scrolled on by. The very idea of stuffing that many hot dogs into himself makes me sick. *blech*

    Kind of hot today at 85°. Not enough breeze. Think I’ll go out and start watering. Wish we would get a decent rain.

      Round trip was 59 minutes; even slower returning. Still hot out.

      Day 5: 311+59=370 minutes.

          I was going to take a shower, then saw the time and remembered that tomorrow I was going to sweat the day away by working outside. Labor. Might as well put the shower on hold until tomorrow night much as I HATE going to bed w/o a shower in the summer. That proves how old I’m getting, that I can talk myself out of that. Sheesh.
