NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Mayor Bloomberg presided over the weigh-in for the Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest Wednesday at City Hall Park — by delivering a pun-filled sentence.
“Let’s be frank,” the Mayor said. “Tomorrow, on a dog day afternoon, in a tradition New Yorkers relish…”
You get the idea.
But the real story of the afternoon was six-time champion Joey Chestnut, who’s heading to the annual Coney Island event with the goal of eating his way to another record-setting victory on Thursday.
