    Is she donating her winnings from the contest to his family? If not , then a proper term other than the word “dedication” should be applied

    This is a very honorable thing to do, both on the part of Sonya and MLE. It melts my heart.

    Death is nothing to joke about . You dont equate hot dog contests and someone dying . You are essentially mocking his death . I read rich shea twitter Carson jr stands strong? They got his kids saluting his memory at a hot dog contest. I have heard it all

    You are the asshole . Maybe George Shea should have given the eulogy at Carson funeral. I can hear it now. This man died of consumption and fought for a cause. The cause was his unequivocal love for the hot dog and bun.
