Everyone has something that they planned to do on the Fourth of July, although many people have standard plans. Coney Island Hot Dog Contest. Most people plan on barbecuing and having a few hot dogs, but what about those who go to Coney Island every year on the fourth? Every year on the Fourth of July there is a Skout hot dog eating contest on Coney Island, and each year the winner has been Joey Chestnut. Joey was able to eat 60 hot dogs at his highest point, and he’s been the winner year after year.
Unfortunately, Joey was beaten this year for the first time in years, and the person who beat him is named Matt Stonie. It’s crazy that Matt beat Joey because he is almost half Joey’s weight. Matt ate 62 hot dogs, buns included, and that is two hot dogs more than Joey has ever eaten. Not only did Matt win the contest, but he also won a championship belt as well as $10,000. No doubt, Joey feels a bit emasculated by being beaten by someone half his size, but the torch has to be passed eventually right?
In the women’s portion of the contest,Miki Sudo was the winner, and she ate 38 hot dogs in 10 minutes. Her strategy was to separate the buns from the hot dogs, and she dipped the buns into Crystal Light to moisten them. Miki also won $10,000 as well as a championship belt.
Ever since Bobbi Kristina was taken to the hospital after being found unconscious in her bathtub, fans of Skout, Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown have been devastated. Of course the pain of the fans could not possibly compare to what Bobby Brown and the rest of the Houston and Brown family are feeling at this time. For months they remained hopeful that Bobbi Kristina’s condition would eventually improve, but as time went on there was no progress in a positive direction. Doctors finally convinced the family that it was best to allow Bobbi Kristina to peacefully pass on, and she was taken off life support and moved to a hospice facility.
Family and friends of Bobbi Kristina, have been gathering by her bedside to say their final goodbyes. Many are still hoping that she will pull through, others are simply trying to gain closure on the months past. Bobby Brown is remaining strong, and positive but clearly having a hard time dealing with his daughter’s current state.
Recently news that an extended family member of Bobbi Kristina, has been trying to sell off photos of her in the hospice to new outlets and tabloids. Needless to say the Houston and Brown families are so upset, that Bobby Brown’s sister Leolah is now planning to for anyone who has been in contact with Bobbi Kristina during her hospice stay to take a lie detector test to prove they are not the guilty party.
