Takeru Kobayashi broke the record of 62 hotdogs with 69 yesterday on a Manhattan rooftop!! The Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Championship at Coney Island was going down at the same times a few miles away. But he wasn’t allowed to compet because he wouldn’t sign a contract with Major League Eating.
That pissed him off though, so he showed them who’d the true champ. Joey Chestnut won the Nathan’s title with 62 dogs, but who really cares when Kobayashi scarfed 69?!
Chestnut later commented on his “defeat”,
“It wasn’t a competition … It was no different than what I do at practice on my own and I’m able to break a record at my house.”
Sure dude, whatever… you still lost.
