The Kansas City Star has a gallery from yesterday's hot dog eating contest held at UpDog in Independence, MO. Teddy Delacruz ate 12 hot dogs in 10 minutes to defend his title.

    hmm, he ate 20 hot dogs at a contest I competed in last year (Heinkel’s in Decatur). Wonder if he was taking it easy or if he’s out of eating shape.

    From what I saw via FB and heard from Teddy, they used 1/4 lb hot dogs this year (4 hot dogs per pound) rather than the standard 1/8 lb hot dogs they’ve used every other past year. (To Anonymous 8:57)
