The great Kobayashi is injured!

I really think he doesn't want to chance defeat against his first legit competition, Joey Chestnut on July 4th.

Takeru Kobayashi of Japan, the six-time champion of the annual Fourth of July hot dog eating contest, may be sidelined for next week's event by an arthritic jaw.
Jaw tendinitis? haha.

I've lost alot of respect for this once great athlete.

Oh man that sucks! Skilled competitive eaters everywhere look up to him.

And yes, its every bit as much a sport as fucking faggot ass golf or synchronized swimming or NFL drug use competition.

You're probably just jealous because you can't handle a foot long.

So when he's 70 y/o, he's going to be on a liquid diet because it will be too painful to eat.

So yea, it does take stamina to be a competitive eater. Thus Kobyashi is an athlete.

I'm pretty good at putt putt.

I've got nothing against golf, just the PGA. Get that shit off the TV and put a real sport on there, like jello wrestling or something.

Joey Chestnut FTW!



Hot dog history was made this Fourth of July, with Joey Chestnut of San Jose, Calif., shattering records – including his own – and winning the Yellow Mustard Belt at the 2007 Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, Brooklyn.

At Wednesday's midday match, the 23-year-old civil-engineering student beat six-time defending champion Takeru Kobayashi, 29, of Japan, by downing a record-breaking 66 dogs.

Kobayashi ate 63 dogs. In the final 120 seconds of the 12-minute competition the competitors appeared to be an adrenaline surging jaw-to-jaw tie – until Chestnut won.

"It's time it came back to America ? on the Fourth of July," Chestnut, draped in the Stars and Stripes and still catching his breath, said after claiming the title.

Last year, Kobayashi set the Nathan's Coney Island contest record by chomping down 53.75 dogs and buns, a benchmark he and Chestnut easily bypassed this year.

But even more impressive, perhaps, is that both competitive eaters broke a world's record set by Chestnut only last month – 59.5 hot dogs in 12 minutes – at an Arizona regional qualifying event in anticipation of Coney.

Though there had been talk that Kobayashi, who announced last week he had been diagnosed with arthritis of the jaw, might not participate this year, Chestnut said that once it was clear his rival would be in the game, "I had to come in and push much harder than the human body could handle, and make my body work for me."

Asked immediately after his victory when he might be ready to face his next frank, Chestnut replied, "If I needed to eat one right now, I could."

Third-place winner Patrick Bertoletti, of Chicago, downed 49 dogs and dedicated his game to Nicky Hilton, sister of Paris Hilton, because, he said, the younger sibling doesn't get as much publicity as the older hotel heiress.

To prepare for Wednesday's heat, Chestnut told ESPN, which broadcast the contest live, that he'd eaten no solid food for two days but drank about a gallon of water the morning of the event.

Haha. I love how the announcers covered the reversal. " Oh no, Kobayashi performed a reversal. How will the judges react?"

Sort of like when a gymnast takes an extra step on a landing or something.

The hyperbole was way over the top. That is not a sport. Those are not athletes.
Some clown who choking down a double shit-load of hot dogs is not 'the greatest moment in the history of sports'. For those idiots to call that Chestnut clown a 'great American hero' about made me have my own reversal.

And something tells me both Kobyashi and Chestnut are in much better shape than you.

Not sure when it was from. I thought the expression on Joey's face was priceless though.

Here is K's workouts and a look at his abs.
