Hot Dog Day

Once again, it's time for the annual Nathan's Hot Dog eating contest at the original Nathan's in Coney Island, Brooklyn.

Anonymous email, a big fan of competitive eating contests has said he'd be in the crowd today, and we look forward to seeing whether he can bring back photos and scuttlebutt from the festivities.

Gothamist has the background.

UPDATE 7/5/2008:
Anonymous emailer didn't make it to the festivities, but ESPN's coverage is here, including video of the entire competition, which went into overtime as Kobiyashi and Chestnut tied in regulation at 59 hot dogs consumed in 10 minutes. Chestnut won in overtime, retaining his championship.
