Hot Dog Hubby

With no World Cup action today, the eyes of the sporting world were no doubt on the United States and the traditional July 4th Nathan's Coney Island Hot Dog Eating contest sponsored by the International Federation of Competitive Eating.

There was high drama when former champion Takeru (The Tsunami) Kobayashi, banned from competing by a contractual dispute with the rival Major League Eating, (I am not making this up), tried to rush the stage after watching Joey (Jaws) Chestnut retain his title.

Kobayashi was arrested and led away in handcuffs. For those into stats, and who isn't?, Chestnut won by 11 hot dogs against a weak field, and well short of his world record total last year when he ate 68 hot dogs, buns and all, in 10 minutes.

I had Chestnut value at 1.2 on the Elo ratings, but unfortunately was unable to find any market, which is surprising for such a prestigious sporting event. Get your acts together betting exchanges!

How demeaning the term 'wifey' is, yet at least one blogger thinks it acceptable to use the term in approximately 1 in 3 posts.

The urban dictionary definition is:

Wifey - adjective for NAIVE, DUMB, STUPID, girl who has no mind of her own and is only good for serving the needs of her "HUBBY"

The wifey hands him over her paycheck, while he spends it on drinking with his boys and hitting up the clubs. While wifey, ever the housewife, sits at home blowing up his phone in between either breastfeeding, doing the dishes, or watching TV.

lol, it makes my toes curl every time I read his posts with wifey in.

I'd say it was closer to 1 in 2 posts, also.
