U-S-A! U-S-A!

Suck it, Kobayashi.
His record was smashed yesterday when Joey "Jaws" Chestnut consumed a whopping 59 1/2 hot dogs in 12 minutes during the Southwest Regional qualifier for the Nathan's Contest in Arizona.

They will go tubesteak a tubesteak on July 4 at Nathan's Hot Dogs in Coney Island. This is our Independence Day!

I can't tell you how badly America needs this lift right now. America has needed a new breed of hero ever since Rocky's reversals of fortune.

Isn't Kobayashi rountinely in the 50s? Should be a real slugfest.

Joey Chestnut is definitely the great white hope. He's always my favorite competitive food eater. Just watching his face turn red and the veins start popping out, you know he's giving it his all.

I"m also a fan of Sonja, the Black Widow. Let's hope she has a good showing.
