Speaking about going overboard, Takeru "Tsunami" Kobayashi, who has won six straight Nathan's Famous hot dog eating contests, suffered a serious jaw injury while training for the July 4 event, in what some are calling "jaw-thritis". Kobayashi, in case you don't pay attention to the world of competive eating, had upped the ante last year with a world record 53¾ hot dogs in 12 minutes! But word on the street is, Joey "Jaws" Chestnut, recently broke that record by inhaling 59½ dogs in a Nathan's Famous regional qualifier, setting the stage for an epic showdown next month. Competive Eating? God Damn I love this country...
