One of my first 4th of July’s I spent in NYC, I was thrilled and honored to be a part of the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.
NO…not as a competitor, but as a cheerleader. The man I cheered on, made me and the other girl wear khaki shorts and a gaudy American Flag inspired sequin vest. I am sure there are pics of me in this outfit somewhere on the internet. I just haven’t had time to find them and pull them up.
I’ve always wondered how people involved in competitive eating are often small and Asian.
There are many things I also wonder about competitive eating. How does one train for such an event? How do you not gain weight? Maybe these are questions I can answer myself by simply using google, but I’m too lazy right now.
Please have a happy and safe fourth.
