It's Memorial Day, so we (and probably you guys, too) are going to be eating more than our fair share of delicious, all-American hot dogs (which were first introduced right here in St. Louis in 1904, no less). Naturally, America is all about bigger and better, so the gluttonous Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is about as American as you can get. We were on location last weekend at Busch Stadium for the regional competition. Watch interviews with winner Sean "Flash" Gordon" and runner up Eric "Badlands" Booker as well as some serious face-stuffing. Happy Memorial Day, ya'll!
