    San Jose's Joey Chestnut wins 7th straight hot dog eating contest

    Go joey, i was sitting in class with this fool in 2007 at San Jose States. Go Spartans.

    NEW YORK (AP) -- Joey Chestnut has downed 69 franks and devoured his own record in the annual Coney Island hot dog eating contest.
    The San Jose, Calif., man known as Jaws scarfed down the dogs and buns to win the Fourth of July men's contest. He takes home $10,000 and a mustard-yellow champion's belt.
    Sonya Thomas, a 100-pound dynamo known as the "Black Widow" of competitive eating, wolfed down nearly 37 wieners for a narrow victory in the women's competition.
    Chestnut, 29, is a seven-time winner who set the old record -- 68 hot dogs and buns in 10 minutes -- in 2009 and tied it last year. Thomas, 45, powered through 45 dogs to take the women's championship last year and also won in 2011, the

    Now in its 98th year, the Nathan's Famous Fourth of July International Hot Dog Eating Contest generally draws a crowd of thousands to marvel at contestants cramming frankfurters down their throats.
