Competitive Eating

Why, every fourth of July (and sometimes at other times) are we subjected to coverage of this nonsense? Why with famine in the world, obesity prevalent in America, and a general ignorance about the most mundane matters of health, do we get front page coverage on guys trying to eat 60 hot dogs in twelve minutes without throwing up.

Shame on Sports Illustrated, especially for featuring this prominently on their web site.

Double shame on ESPN for broadcasting it.

Hey guys, why not show clips from a DISC GOLF tournament instead?
