2nd Intermission Entertainment?

A hot dog eating contest took place during tonight’s second intermission, with contestants from several local colleges. Sonya the “Black Widow” Thomas, one of the top-ranked competitive eaters in the world, was on hand to train the contestants taking part in the challenge. The student who ate the most hot dogs won a pair of round-trip tickets on Southwest Airlines to celebrate spring break anywhere Southwest flies.
First, Sonja demonstrates how to competitively down the dogs.

Congratulations Virginia Tech, one of your own was the big Weiner. His name is Alex Malycke.
[Update: While we had a few images, Dan Steinberg has the juicy meat of the story at his D.C. Sports Bog]
[Update 2: Greg Wyshynski has more at the FanHouse.]
