jimmy fallon did his best Joey Chestnut impression during last night’s Rangers playoff game in New York… the late night talk show host dunked his hot dog – bun and all – in his beer before devouring both and spilling all over the place!
“The Tonight Show” host was in the building for Game 5 of the Conference Finals between the NYR and the Tampa Bay Lightning … when Fallon found himself on the big screen at Madison Square Garden, hot dog and beer in hand.
Fallon, a New York native, has clearly seen a Nathan hot dog eating contest or two in his day…Jimmy softened the bread using his brew, before it all went down the drain.
Of course, if you’ve watched competitive eating, you know it’s the preferred method of eating fast.
FYI, Chestnut’s the record is 76 hot dogs/buns in 10 minutes. He regularly stores more than 70.
For Rangers fans, the off-ice antics were much more entertaining… the team lost Game 5 by a score of 3-1, and now trails in the series, 3-2. And, now the team has to go on the road to Tampa… where NY is 0-2 this series.
It’s reminiscent of the New York Knicks fan a few years ago who was filmed dipping chicken nuggets in his soda.
Jimmy, do you have any plans for the 4th of July?? There’s a hot dog place on Coney Island…
