Recommended Posts

Eldorado

"A man died Tuesday night after participating in a taco eating competition at a minor league baseball game. The competition took place last night at Chukchansi Park in Fresno, California, during a game between the Fresno Grizzlies and Memphis Redbirds."

Full report at CNN: https://edition.cnn.com/2019/08/14/us/fresno-taco-eating-death-trnd/index.html

"A witness described how he was ‘just shoving the tacos down his mouth without chewing’".

They continued with the game.  There's no crying in baseball.

Poor guy. I was thinking it's a wonder this doesn't happen more often, but then I read this:

This isn’t the first time a death has occurred during an eating competition. In 2017, a 20-year old US college student died during a pancake eating contest at Sacred Heart University in Connecticut. In 2018, a retired boxed died during a croissant eating contest in Argentina.
