Is eating hot dogs a sport?
It's the Fourth of July and a tradition unlike any other is back. No, we're not talking about fireworks. The world's biggest eaters are coming to Coney Island to take part in Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. Some feel that the amount of work needed to compete in this test of gastrointestinal fortitude should qualify competitive food eating as a sport. Still, others think its glorified gluttony and there is no athleticism involved. What do you think? 🌭 🇺🇸

It takes a lot of training to be a competitive eater. Participants have to work to expand their stomach and allow the food to sit in their guts. They also have to work their jaws out to maximize intake. It may not be a contact sport, but it is physically taxing enough to be considered a sport.

Eating isn't a sport. Literally, every being on the planet eats to survive. The only things these "athletes" are exercising is their right to gluttony. Don't give these people anymore legitimacy than they deserve.
