Joey Chestnut: Everyone’s Saying Same Thing About Chestnut Today.. Today could be Joey Chestnut’s flu game.
That’s what everyone on social media is saying, anyway, as the legendary Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest champion is dealing with an injury before the famous competition.
Chestnut will be on crutches this afternoon, as he injured something in his leg. However, the legendary foot eater is not worried about the impact it’ll have on his performance.
“I’m gonna eat like a madman,” Chestnut told Fox News Digital.
“It’s a ruptured tendon,” he added of his injury.
“It’s all right. I’ll be able to stand up and eat. I’m excited.”
