SportsFilter: The Saturday Huddle:

A place to discuss the sports stories that aren't making news, share links that aren't quite front-page material, and diagram plays on your hand. Remember to count to five Mississippi before commenting in anger.

Two weeks after the fact, this morsel from the rather overlooked and under reported July 4th Coney Island Hot Dog Eating contest, which was won once again by world record holder Joey Chestnut:

"The Nathan's Famous contest is the crown jewel of the Fourth of July and stands as a beacon of freedom for all those who believe in American exceptionalism," said George Shea of Major League Eating. "Joey Chestnut is a national treasure. The rock on which he stands is not a rock. It is the United States of America."

Please stand for the anthem with your hand over your transverse colon.
