Wimbledon, Queen’s Jubilee Totally Interfering With Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest


When Nathan’s Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest goes down July 4 on Coney Island, the sausage spectacle will have to start at 3 p.m. rather than noon this year, writes the Brooklyn Paper. ESPN, which live-broadcasts the tube-steak tournament, will be tied up showing the Wimbledon quarterfinals earlier that day — oh, and it’s also the Queen’s Jubilee. Sotted Brits. Mark this in your calendar, though: July 4, a great day to stay inside and watch TV. [Brooklyn Paper]
