We witnessed history last week. Not just with Joey Chestnut picking up his 15th title, which is the most titles for any athlete in the history of sports. But even more impressive, he did it while taking down a protester. 2022 has been a big year for protesters. From women gluing themselves to the court during the NBA playoffs, to the dude who smeared cake on the Mona Lisa, to now this low-rent Darth Vader giving Joey Jaws a nudge on the one day out of the year where any of us talk about or care about Joey Chestnut. That doesn’t fly.
