Hot Diggity Dog that's fast!
Takeru "Tsunami'' Kobayashi, the 29 year old who is famous for the number of hotdogs he can eat at the Nathans' Famous hotdog contest in NY, has suffered a "professional injury" & can barely open his mouth. His record was 53 hotdogs in 12 minutes but he also holds records for eating the largest number of rice balls & cow brains.
How is this a sport? And really isn't a "professional injury" something someone in a real profession would suffer, like a fireman getting hurt on the job, or a soldier getting hurt in battle?
He now actually has "jaw arthritis". Who gets that? (Feel free to insert Monica Lewinsky joke here, I just can't bring myself to say it!)
