‘Sport Science’ Shows What 69 Hot Dogs Does to a Body (Video)

The ESPN show Sport Science does some pretty cool stuff. They show how hard a tackle can be from a defensive back, and how to make free throws. But they took a bigger liberty with the phrase “sport” this weekend as they, in honor of the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on the 4th of July, showed what 69 hot dogs (the record set by Joey Chestnut) looks like in a stomach.

It’s not pretty. In fact, it’s terrifying.

They used a dummy with an expandable stomach to show the reaction. That stomach gets BIG!


All I can think of is the opening scene from Se7en. It’s not fun.

I wonder how long you have to waddle around like a pregnant penguin to digest that amount of food. And how long that takes. I think we’re gonna need another Sport Science lesson…
