Joey Chestnut retakes title with record 70

update Jul 8 The Guardian has a gallery

The Daily News has an article about the attack. Three protestors, who disguised themselves as fans, were taken in to police custody after taking the stage.

Protesters also apparently tried to jump Crazy Legs Conti near the start of the contest which required police intervention. This is probably the reason for the one hot dog performance.

Dan Katz reports that protesters from PETA knocked over his plates and threw fake blood on him.

This will be a big hour for Bay Area sports. Kevin Durant has decided to join the Golden State Warriors and San Joseans Joey Chestnut and Matt Stonie should finish top 2 barring a shocking upset.
