Hungry for more sport
Is stuffing your face with ridiculous amounts of food a sport? Yes, according to Yardbaker.com, a network of blogs from a number of world-class athletes.
Yardbarker has signed on with champion eaters Joey Chestnut and Pat Bertolleti on a blog chronicling their efforts to train for the competitive eating circuit.
first blog entries from the gastrointestinally gifted pair come as they are training for the Deep Fried Asparagus Eating Championship at the Stockton Asparagus Festival. You read that correctly. Deep Fried Asparagus.
We get to see Chestnut eat about 8 pounds of the lengthy vegetable while listening to some Rob Zombie. And believe it or not, it's no more disgusting than watching Rocky Balboa drink raw eggs from a glass and then run up the art museum steps.
Chestnut is the world record holder in fried asparagus consumption, as he once ate 8.6 pounds in ten minutes. You may recall that he dethroned the legendary Kobayashi as world record hot dog eating champion on July 4 at Coney Island in New York.
