I would like to wish my American friends (that includes my 4 American readers as well) a happy 4th of July weekend. Much like us Canadians I’m told that our American neighbours enjoy bbq’ing some red meat on the grill, drinking a few lively adult bevvy’s and perhaps firing off some illegal/not so illegal firecrackers. Where our two nations might differ is where our country draws the line in the world of competitive eating. I’m not aware of this being a big deal to us (granted we are a nation who incessantly checks the TV on July 1st for the Free Agent Frenzy, but come on that’s normal right?). In any event the American viewing public has fired up a great deal of debate on to who will walk away with the title of best hot dog eater (I kid you not. Is there a vegetarian division?)
The two main combatants for the Nathan’s 4th of July hot dog eating contest are:
I could bore you with a breakdown of who is likely to win this epic battle or I could do the honest thing and leave it to the experts at THE SPORTING BLOG. If you really care about this competition (amazingly some do, I’m not judging, I’m just saying…) then I would defer to the fine folks at the THE SPORTING BLOG and read their synopsis. If you would by chance like to see who I have winning this challenge please continue on reading after the bounce.
Remember now, I really can’t call myself a knowledgeable hot dog eating analyst by any means. So I’ll have to go with my heart in calling the winner of this contest. (Insert dramatic drum roll) The winner of tomorrow’s Nathan’s hot dog eating contest will be
ERIN ANDREWS OF COURSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Who else could look this fine in a grainy taken from the television picture? I’ll tell you who, the sideline princess herself, Erin Andrews. Happy 4th of July my American friends. Enjoy your hot dogs and early baseball start times.
