Frankly, nothing says independence like the official Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest!  See what I did there? I'm sorry. What channel and time can you watch it?

You can stream the event live from Brooklyn, New York online at WatchESPN or watch the tape delay at 3 p.m. EST (2 p.m. CST) on ESPN. ESPN will air the event after its Wimbledon coverage.

The big showdown today will be Matt Stonie vs Joey Chestnut. Last year, Stonie devoured 62 hotdogs, beating Chestnut who scarfed down 60 hotdogs.
