Frankly Speaking

This is a picture of The World’s Greatest Athlete!

His name is Joey “Jaws” Chestnut and he ate a record-breaking 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes at the 98th Nathan’s Famous 4th of July hot dog eating contest.

Excess. Competition. Skill. Speed. Experience. All of these add up to a man who is the epitome of the All-American champion. So he only ate some wieners, you say? That doesna make him an athlete, by any means. How dare you, I counter. If curling and badminton can be Olympic events, then competitive eating can be a sport!

Plus – Chestnut broke the record that he himself previously set. And he’s won every year since he sent gastronomic go-getter and six-time previous champ, Takeru Kobayashi, packing like the scared little masticating mockery he was!

Ruth, Ali, Gretsky, Chesnut. Names that will be remembered for centuries to come. The greatest? You know it, dude!
