It is not every day that you see a San Josean featured in Sports Illustrated. What was Joey Chestnut's athletic feat? He ate an amazing 69 hot dogs in 10 minutes, breaking his own previous record of 68 Hot Dogs last year. This is his seventh consecutive title!
69 hot dogs contain about 8 days worth of calories for an average man, and 1,173 grams of fat (a normal American has 40-50 grams of fat per day). Even Ronald McDonald is impressed.
