The Daily Directive

Joey Chestnut won his third straight Nathans Hot Dog Eating Contest on the 4th, beating rival Kobayashi. He scarfed down a world record 68 hotdogs and buns during the 10 min contest. But that wasnt the most surprising thing for us here in Orangeland. What shocked us was that our hero Doug Marrone did not participate. How can this be? We know that he has competitive eating skills. So where was Doug? How could he allow this in his own backyard? What will the recruits think?

I would also like to point out that pre-Kobayashi the record was set at 25 1/8 in 2000. And going back to 1989 the winner had THIRTEEN! Chestnut ate more than FIVE times as many! How in a 20 year span did it jump that high? And how did it nearly double from 2000 to 2001 (50 dogs)? Are PED being used here? Or has the method of washing down the dogs been perfected?

Personally I think the should limit the amount of water that can be used. And hotdogs and buns need to be eaten simultaneously. The way you normally eat a hotdog. Should the contest not be who can eat the most hotdogs like a man? Instead it has become a technical systematic battle. Also this contest is a sprint, as it is timed. It would be interesting to see who can eat the most in one sitting. If everyone ate until the were stuffed would it make a difference?

You probably take umbrage with the Fosbury flop because it's not a "real" way to jump.

That is fine but it would be nice to see different styles. Is swimming not swimming? Yet they have races with different styles. It would be interesting to see how high one could jump and then land into a sand pit.
