No way he competes when the hot dog eating contest is the day after


plainwrap

He's gonna send out the U-18 Chestnuts.

dezmodez

He eats big day before to expand stomach and barfs it up. So he's likely not going to mail it in here.


notionalsoldier

This is it. This is how we grow the game, folks. We did it.


gbpackers25

Once we have Joey downing hot dogs during the national anthem at MLS Cup then we will truly know we have made it


alxhooter

"Hot dogs eaten by Joey Chestnut during the national anthem" is a prop bet the Super Bowl can only dream about.


Isiddiqui

The scenes in Vegas when the anthem singer goes on a second run during the final "Brave"


ListOhFlapjacks

I'm not happy until we get Kobiyashi.


Nokel

Somebody get Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas on the phone


dezmodez

*Disney lawyers intensify...* ...but... but... she had the nickname before Disney even bought Marvel. ***Disney lawyers intensify further***


Jadentheman

Why not Matt Stonie? He has a huge YouTube following


ImMitchell

That video of him eating with the NY Cosmos was hilarious

If someone ever made an MLS iceberg, this feels like it would be on there.

Peak American sport


monty-p-moneybanks

“Presented by Dude Wipes” wonder if the contestants get some for free after the contest.


gbpackers25

For everyone in the stadiums sake I really hope they do


murty_the_bearded

Hahah gross, I thought you were making a joke till I went back and looked closer at the image.


LoonsOverWisconsin

Joey is looking rough


cindybuttsmacker

He was in the same class as my sister for a course she took in college called Creating A Meaningful Life, and one of the assignments was to partner up and do an activity with your partner that you find adds meaning to your own life, and vice versa. It should be surprising to nobody what activity Joey had his partner do


OfficialWomanCard

Good thing she already had a ton of practice


cindybuttsmacker

I feel I have to clarify that she did not herself partner up with Joey, BUT that said - nice one!! lmao


Wu-Tang_Cam

There's nowhere else that could've possibly gone on reddit. You're a good sport, though.


cindybuttsmacker

I wanted to respond "can't say I didn't see it coming" or "I walked right into that one" but either of those would have set me up for it all over again


PM_ME_SOME_LUV

All that glizzy grease will do that to ya


usmnturtles

Hopefully it doesn’t turn into a “kick the bucket” eating contest.


hypernermalization

I'll save whatever jokes I had about this and just like... doesn't he have a thing the next day? I feel like "featuring" is doing a lot of heavy lifting there and he might be the judge of this rather than competing.


BoomaMasta

Yeah, I would tend to agree. I'll be genuinely disappointed if I don't get to watch him slurp 80 sloppy dogs the next day.


bossmt_2

He's just gonna casually eat 2 chickens like it's a regular meal o save his shit haha.


bec_SPK

Appreciate our team eating their feelings after last night.


SeekersWorkAccount

Games not gone.


DestinyCookie

Wait, what's Joey Chestnut doing with NYCFC? He's from the Bay, he's supposed to rep the Quakes!


CNJ339

Doesn’t he live in Indy?! He’s probably more well known in NYC as he’s most famous for the Nathan’s competition.


DestinyCookie

Per Wikipedia, yeah, but he grew up in Vallejo. He's actually been to Quakes games back in the day, but it's been a hot minute.


abellwillring

I gotta wonder how this affects the odds of him winning the hot dog eating contest the next day.


runnerd6

This is the kind of stuff you'd read about in newspapers from 1920 and laugh at.


RCTID1975

Or, hear me out. Read about on the internet in 2022 and laugh at.


byfuryattheheart

One time I competed in a hotdog eating contest that was judged by Kobayashi. I got last place 🥲


RCTID1975

I competed in a hotdog eating contest once and got last place too. I was also like 14 and just wanted free hotdogs at the fair. Seeing people dunk the rolls in water almost made me gag though


intestinal_fortitude

What is this, 2003?


kiddvideo11

Love Joey Chestnut!


Isiddiqui

The "Presented by Dude Wipes" just fits so well with this promotion.


redribbonrecon

Fwiw, if he actually competes in this rather than cruises thru a couple of pieces, I hope the bookmakers don't notice so I can lay a nice bet on the under for the hot dog eating contest


TBRock00

Am I the only one that thought it was Brad Guzan at first?


hoopsandpancakes

What home?


Sorrow57

Wait, is he eating the bucket??


xjoeymillerx

Oops, all buckets.


PM_ME_SOME_LUV

Wow that’s awesome. Pretty good deal too


jasonlp03

I want him to come to Nashville and eat the highest level of Prince's Hot Chicken


zensum

Outside the box marketing...nothing wrong with that...how effective an entirely different matter...


CNJ339

I once watched this dude eat like 12 pounds of Skyline Chili at a Cincinnati theme park like 15 years ago lmao


gopac56

This feels like an Onion piece


Wu-Tang_Cam

Especially with the "presented by Dude Wipes". I almost can't believe that's a thing.


thelowandtobask

Already putting the Apple money to good use!


iamenusmith

What is a chicken bucket? Is it a bucket made of chicken?


nvalle08

Yet another L for the Quakes


t_l_m

There is a Major League Eating competition and this dude is ranked first? And we snagged him for promotion in MLS 3.0? I feel like this is a fever dream


tunafun

He’s going to eat a bucket? Whose going to compete against that? Gross.


IafratesSkullet

And people say soccer isn’t American enough


nomascusgabriellae

Something about this being sponsored by dude wipes aint right


Konradlaxin

Make sure to bring your Dude Wipes


Sciortmc

For all in attendance, this was such a let down. Didn't even compete 😡😡

caalger

This is baseball bullshit. Do we really need to stoop this low?


OfficialWomanCard

Yes it's fun


caalger

No, it's stupid. Baseball requires gimmicks like this to keep people engaged and put butts in seats.


Isiddiqui

I don't understand why some soccer fans have their weird animosity against baseball for no real reason.


caalger

Because it is everything soccer is not. Slow. 1:1. Tremdous downtime. Constant commercials. It's boring and requires gimmicky bullshit like minibat or superhero night to get people excited to be there.


Isiddiqui

Those gimmicks must be amazing because MLB games get far more viewers than soccer leagues do in the US. It always amuses me when some soccer fans complain about other sports being boring since that's always the charge that other fans have against soccer. And there are people who like baseball and soccer because they aren't the same exact sort of thing. That's the benefit.


lordcorbran

A lot of people think soccer is slow and boring. The two sports are really more alike than you'd think. In each one a lot of the enjoyment comes from anticipation, the buildup leading to big moments.


TehWildMan_

Not necessarily baseball bullshit, but it is a baseball stadium.
