    Not sure why, but this has been asked on sports channels. Some say you have to train extensively to eat in these competitions. I say no. What do you think?

    Absolutely not. I don't even know why they broadcast these things. But I guess it's like a train wreck- people can't look away.

    Then again, the thought of 53 hot dogs in my stomach?? Vomit.

    It's a freak show -- circus performers, at best.

    Well, William "Refrigerator" Perry was an athlete, and he always ate competitively ... with himself.
