U S A !

Joey Chestnut won the hot dog eating contest at Coney Island yesterday. I did not go and regrettably even missed it on TV but it was genuinely big news here. The hot dog eating contest at Nathan's (very good dogs, I will do a rating of New York City Hot Dogs soon) has taken place every year since 1916 . It's a Brooklyn tradition. It's a big deal. This year for the first time in years, an American won. It's not quite Team USA beating Russia in Hockey - but it's the closest we've come in a long while and it was one of the highlight of my July 4th!
