Nathan's Hotdog Eating Contest - 2009

Joey Chestnut wins his 3rd Nathan's Hotdog Eating Contest consuming 68 hotdogs in 10 minutes. The commentary alone is worth the viewing. This is disgusting, and at the same time, downright hysterical. This is the only competition where you can say the phrase 'he has a 2 dog lead' with a straight face.
