A buddy of mine has bragged about eating 27 hotdogs over 9 innings at a Royals game. I told him that's not so big a feat and will eat 28 over 9 innings at this friday's Royals game. It's buck night that night, which is why it was chosen. I'm looking forward to hanging out with my friends, but this is totally stupid. It's been talked up amongst my circle of friends now and I'm gonna look chicken or something if I back out now. So I'm committed (or at least should be).

Any suggestions? I'm thinking of not eating too big a dinner thursday to keep the system mostly empty and not eat much if at all on friday until the game. During friday, drink a LOT of water and some beer before the game starts. Then hit the toilet and hotdog vendor and game on.........Just hope I don't get too sick from it.

Don't drink too much, especially beer
Skimp on eating the buns if he will let you get away with it.

Good Luck

Variety in the toppings will help... a little mustard on a few, a little ketchup on some others, lot just plain. And just don't think about pig testicles...

You quit smoking and now you're a 2.8 pack a day hot dog eater?
(3.5/day on the buns)

Yeah. I'm thinking that I'll need some water to get me through all the sodium in the dogs, but I won't be drinking anything other than that while I'm doing this.

Maybe eat nothing but salads between now and then and for several days after. I hadn't considered too much the impact on my health until I talked to my sister who is in school to be a Physican's Assistant. I'm taking in a lot of calories in 9 innings and a lot of fat.

Yeah, I'm really hoping after all this I can hold off on the ciggys still. I'm pretty sure after 28 hotdogs I'd just about kill for a ciggy.

I seem to remember Pumbaa has done something like this. Send him a PM.

Actually, DO NOT MISS YOUR MEALS before hand. The food you eat (overeat) will stretch your stomach.

Before the game you need to go to the bathroom and purge your stomach. That's the best I can help you with.

Good luck...fool!@!

Yeah, I've considered the 1 dog every other out, plus 1. I just did some quick math at the farmland website (I think the hotdogs at Kaufmann stadium say farmland on the package) and I'm gonna be taking in 5,040 calories and 7 days worth of fat and sodium at this ball game. That's just the dogs, haven't factored n buns yet. I'm having some serious second thoughts.
