On Saturday the 40th Three Rivers Festival started. We went down at noon to see the Hot Dog Eating Contest. No, we are not really into these kinds of things. In fact, it was the first one we had ever seen. We had a special interest in this one: Brandt was competing. He had made it through the preliminaries and now was the real thing!

All 14 of them lined up behind their hot dogs and were ready to go.
They had 5 minutes to eat as many as they could. Some stood up and some sat down. Whatever worked for them, it didn't matter...just eat those hot dogs and buns FAST!

Brandt had nine hot dogs left out of 20. We thought that was wonderful, but he missed third place by ONE hot dog!

It was great fun watching the excitement. We were all proud of Brandt coming in 4th place!!! I wonder if he will want another hot dog very soon???
