Joey “Jaws” Chestnut won his 5th straight Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest in Coney Island, NY where Chestnut downed 62 hot dogs in 10 minutes, retaining his Mustard Belt. Now how the hell does a guy who is not even half of a fatty, eat so many damn hot dogs?
Well you know John Brenkus of Sports Science is all-knowing, so of course he has an explanation for Chestnut’s eating abilities.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QW_ve1TlmI[/youtube]
How much does John Brenkus like taking down hot dogs. And don’t lie John we know you can eat long pieces of meat a lot faster than that.
And if you are wondering what happened to 6 time champion and Unofficial World Record Holder (69 dogs in 10 mintues) Takeru Kobayashi; well he has split with MLE (Major League Eating), which all started when he got arrested for trying to charge the stage after Joey Chestnut won his 4th eating contest. Why did Kobayashi charge the stage? Nobody knows. He claims he was going to congratulate Joey, but others think he wanted to disrupt the event.
Now today my man Koba was at his own hot dog eating contest (since he is not allowed to be at any MLE events) seven miles west of Coney Island at a mid-town Manhattan rooftop bar, where Koba watched the Nathan’s contest on TV as he himself downed 69 hot dogs, beating Chestnut’s 62 today and the previous record of 68 (held by Chestnut).
Regardless, without Kobayashi participating in MLE this event has become too easy for Chestnut so either Kobayashi returns or I convince FloppingOut’s own hot dog guru Nicholas Spano (aka fatty with hot dog burps) to start training. What a fatty.
