    Someone is def. going to vomit. They pushed the time limit down to 10 minutes from 12. Get your umbrellas ready.

    Saw the opening of the show today. I cannot tell you how sad it is to see one-time Indy Car TV PBP man Paul Page call the action. I know Page does NHRA these days, but he's better than anyone currently in the IndyCar booth and should be back there.

    Was always a Page fan when I followed the CART circuit. Where's Parker Johnstone these days?

    There were some better ones than that:

    - Joey Chestnut is the Clay Aiken of Bacon.
    -Joey Chestnut is to hot dog eating what Lindsey Lohann is to mini-bars.
    - Hybrid cars, bleach alternatives, I don't know all the answers, but these guys know how to eat.
    -Sonya ate 11 pounds of cheesecake, now that's a mama I want to meet.

    Tied at 59 at the end of regulation. First one to finish five additional hot dogs (i.e. Chestnutt) is the winner.
