Something I am finding very disturbing on ESPN.com today is the stories about the Nathan's 4th of July hotdog eating contest. The allegations that Kobayashi has been surgeically altered to becaome the ultimate speed eating machine, is freakish. But the most disturbing thing was one of the competiors said that competitive eaters don't need drug testing now, but probably will when it becomes an olympic sport. Are they nuts! Speed eating a competitive sport. Will each venue get to pick what local food is eaten for speed, glory and gold medals. Athens 2004 - Gyros. Vancouver 2010 - whale blubber. Etc etc.
But after reading this article, one guy who was quoted holds the world record for eating donuts 30 in 5:28. I don't know that doesn't seem like an awful lot of donuts?
