When will the injustice end? It looks like ESPN may not be broadcasting the women's finals of this year's Nathan's Famous hot dog-eating contest only the men's. The schedule for the July 4th showdown at Coney Island lists the women's finals as happening at 11:30 a.m., but the broadcast begins at noon.
This year is the first time women will compete in their own separate division; organizers originally offered a prize much less than the men's purse, but later increased it so the two are equal. Any female eaters too offended to participate could join this guy in going rogue.
