    . . . a bunch of us from college — some friends we met after graduation — are heading to an NFL game to celebrate a buddy's 30th birthday.

    The organizer bought tickets in the all-you-can-eat section.

    Of course, someone (not me) suggested a hot dog eating contest.

    I'm convinced I could easily win this thing (I can eat a large pizza for dinner and eat later on).

    But my question: At what number of hot dogs should I be concerned about my health?

    I'm serious.

    If I enter this stupidity, I'm in it to win it.

    Number of hot dogs before you worry about your health? 1.

    Depends on composition of Dog. Rule of thumb for the pros

    All Beef - all you can eat

    All meat -- don't go beyond 9.

    Well, they're stadium dogs. I highly doubt we're getting served all beef.

    That said, nine?!

    Guys are work have set my over/under at 12.

    I mean, I like hot dogs. I haven't bought any recently, but I like them better than hamburgers at cookouts.

    But they're hardly healthy. :)

    I do get the 98 percent fat free ones, with some turkey chili and fat-free shredded cheddar to make my Weight Watchers-approved chili dogs. :)

    Pete, if we ever meet, you and I will have a contest.

    But, for now, good luck! Let us know how it turns out!! :)

    Screw the hot dogs. Have a beer drinking contest.

    9 is for pussies. Go until you get sick. You only do it (hopefully) once a year. Go for broke.

    Every year on Dec. 12, I have a get together with friends. The challenge is 12 pieces of KFC original chicken and 12 beers. THAT'S a health risk.

    That too will be happening. And I always win that. I need a new challenge.
