It’s on!

Welcome to our live blog of the Nathan’s Hot-Dog-Eating contest in Coney Island.

The favorite, Joey “Jaws” Chestnut is going for his seventh-straight belt.

If you don’t have ESPN, follow all the breaking chews right here on!

Noon: We’re working through technical difficulties, but don’t worry, Brooklyn, we will be there for you!

12:42: They’ve all been announced, and we’re just about ready to go!

12:44: The contest begins!

12:54: It’s over! Chestnut wins! He’s done it again!

12:55: 4,192 hits. A 56-game hitting streak. 100 points in one basketball game. Forget all those numbers, as they have been rendered meaningless. The new number to remember is 69 — the amount of hot dogs and buns Joey Chestnut ate in 10 minutes. Amazing. Incredible. Disgusting.

Tune in next Fourth of July for the Brooklyn Paper’s exclusive liveblog to see if Chestnut can do it one more time!
