Even Canadians such as myself are not above celebrating American Day, so do bear with us as we try to get over our July 4th hangover. For those who have not yet heard the big news, now dethroned champ Kobayashi was almost disqualified yesterday in Nathan’s hot dog eating match when what looked like puke streamed through his fingers. According to judges, a contestant is only disqualified if chunks hit the table, which of course, is the most scientific means of evaluating a contest I can think of. In any case, Gothamist has the full story, but the long and the short of it is that 23 year old Joey Chestnut won consuming 66 hot dogs, Kobayashi trailing behind at 63.
