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.

Jesus, Showtime showed this last night. He was done after two rounds. Didnt even look like he wanted to be in there. What a shame. Perhaps the most powerful puncher of my time, and he goes out like a bitch. What a waste.
