Story from AP here...

Takeru Kobayashi barely beat his own hot dog-eating record but BARELY beat Joey Chestnut in doing it.

Chestnut was completely hyped -- and lived up to it. Whether it eats (HA!) promoter George Shea up in real life or not, the Japanese have been 9-5 in the last 14 years... so pegging Chestnut to be the great white hope was a gamble.

However, next year's going to be that much bigger -- Chestnut ate 52, which completely blasts the American record and would have beat Kobayashi last year. So 2007 will be Chestnut/Kobayashi II, and for some sick reason, I can't wait.

I actually thought Chestnut was going to win for a while there but Kobayashi is just too damn fat. No but really it should be good to watch them again next year.
