Down goes Joey "Jaws" Chestnut! The eight-time winner of the Nathan's Famous Hot Dog Eating Contest—who was going for his ninth consecutive win today—just lost his title to Matt "The Megatoad" Stonie. Chestnut "only" finished 60 hot dogs during the contest this year, while Stonie managed to eat 62. And the ESPN commentator who was calling the event got so excited towards the end of it that he went as far as to compare Stonie upsetting Chestnut to Villanova's basketball team beating Georgetown back in 1985, which is widely regarded as one of the biggest upsets in sports history.

We don't know if we'd go that far. But he went on to call Stonie the "Jordan Speith of Tubed Beef," which was pretty amazing. Add this to our list of memorable sports calls.
