Joey Chestnut Goes Down
On the Fourth of July, Joey Chestnut ate 64 hot dogs to win the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog contest, defeating Takeru "The Tsunami" Kobayashi for the second year in a row.
But he was no match for Dewey Hammond. Who's Dewey Hammond? Just some dude who challenged Chestnut to a beer-drinking contest and proceeded to wipe the floor with him. Would this not make you awfully drunk? [Via Deadspin]
