Gentlemen, start your bellies


Philadelphia Magazine writer Jason Fagone spent a year profiling some of the more colorful personalities on the competative eating circuit. In his book Horsemen of the Esophagus: Competative Eating and the Big Fat American Dream, Fagone explains how all of the folks he covers have one shared goal: to win the International Hot Dog Eating Contest at Nathan's on Coney Island.

You can ead an excerpt from Fagone's book on AOL Food.

I don't know what is worse. The fact that I watched people eat dozens of hot dogs each, or the fact that I kept hoping that an American would win the contest!!!
