This past Wednesday, I competed for my third year in the annual Sherman Hot Dog Eating Contest. This year, the object of the contest was to consume ten hot dogs as quickly as possible. With ease, I was able to accomplish the task in around five minutes and win a mountain bike as my prize. Because of such legends as Kobayashi and Joey Chesunut, competitive eating has finally come to the forefront of public discussion. People are amazed that these participants can eat literally dozens of hot dogs, and are awed by their skill and talent. Some would even consider competitive eating a sport, and a few even say that it should be made an Olympic event.
