THE GREATEST MOMENT IN AMERICAN SPORTS
…at least that’s what the announcers said.
DOWN GOES KOBAYASHI!! DOWN GOES KOBAYASHI!!
The American hero Joey Chestnut defeated the Japanese eating monster Takeru Kobayashi 66 – 63 today in the Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest, possibly the perfect sporting(?) event for the 4th of July. The talk leading up to the showdown had revolved around Kobayashi’s jaw, and whether or not it would slow him down. He actually pulled out of the contest at one point, only to end up breaking the previous world record. Unfortunately for him, Joey Chestnut broke it by three more hot dogs. It was thrilling, it was incredible, it was disgusting. I loved every second.

Other choice quotes from the announcers:
“The entire world…the entire FREE world is focused on these two men”
“I didn’t think we could fit Paris Hilton into this broadcast.”
What an awesome way to start the 4th of July.
