San Jose’s Joey Chestnut, the reigning champ of the Nathan’s Famous Fourth of July Coney Island Hot Dog Eating contest,┬áhas done it again, gobbling something like 4,000 slices of pizza in 10 minutes Sunday to win the first Famous Famiglia World Pizza Eating Championship in New York’s Times Square.

OK — it was actually 45. But I bet it felt like 4,000.

I wish this contest was around when I was about 17 and still had a working metabolism.
