A competitive eating league. They are calling it a sport. Better make a new icon for it here on the site! :sidelol:

I actually enjoy watching the hot dog eating contest every year. I dont think eating is a sport but neither is poker....I might actually watch this sometimes when Im bored. It's suprising how the fat guy never wins.

fat guy already has a stomach that is filled, little guys is probably emtpy.

Watching it once is one thing. Watching it every week or following it like another sport...........I don't see it!!

Although pie eating contests are always funny.

Spike TV is the new home of competitive eating. The male-targeted cable network, known for its Ultimate Fighting broadcasts, has inked a deal with Shea Baer Productions to air quarterly one-hour Major League Eating specials starting March 17. (http://www.nypost.com/seven/02162007/gossip/pagesix/pigout_central_pagesix_.htm) The barf-inducing spectacles of men and women stuffing various foods down their throats will be hosted by George and Richard Shea, the public relations brothers who turned the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest into an international phenomenon. The specials will feature Japan's Takeru Kobayashi and noted East Village gurgitators Crazy Legs Conti and Eater X.
