Los Angeles Clippers owner Steve Ballmer was hot doggin’ it again during his team’s game against the Houston Rockets this week.

No, the former Microsoft CEO didn’t pull off another slam dunk, but he did attempt to put down a hot dog or two. Problem was, he was taking on a guy who slams hot dogs into his face for a living.

During a break in action Wednesday night, Ballmer and world hot dog eating champ Joey Chestnut squared off, and it was never really close. Ballmer’s heart — and stomach — were clearly not in it, as Chestnut did his thing.

Chestnut, 34, is ranked No. 1 in the world by Major League Eating, and he’s a fixture at the annual July 4 Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in New York, where he’s consumed as many as 66 hot dogs and buns during the 12-minute competition.
