Diamond Dog Eating Contest 2014: Hot dogs and glory

Five brave souls stepped up to the table on Independence day to fight for glory and bragging rights to having guts of steel (among other prizes) during the annual Diamond Dog Eating Contest. Mark Mallman hosted the hot dog-chowing event this year before going on to perform later that night at 7th Street Entry. PHOTOS BY PATTY GROVER on July 4, 2014
