First off, the Hernia would like to wish you a happy and safe 4th of July. If you are looking for a little consumption inspiration today, we suggest you check out the inaugeral Crif Dog Classic at noon EST. It is being streamed live on CNNSI, and features gastro legends Takeru Kobayashi, US Male, Furious Pete & Stephanie 'Chilita' Torres (among others).
Wondering why Kobi isn't going head-to-head with Joey Chestnut at Nathan's? He sat down with Amy K. Nelson to shed some light on the details.
We know you have probably watched the Nathan's Contest every year at Noon on ESPN...and you still can... on tape delay at 3 PM. To watch live you will need to have access to ESPN Pi.
