Man I love competitive eating (you would think some of the nation's finest sports writers would embrace the sport right?). It has heros and villians...it has good and evil....and it has Chestnut v. Kobayashi!
According to an email forwarded from Major League Eating's George and Rich Shea to Sports Biz.....the colassal matchup of American v. Japan will go down July 4th....
以下の文をジョージ・シェイに送ってください。Uh oh! He sounds serious. And he'll have to be since Chestnut recently set the World Record at 59.5 dogs the beginning of this month.
世界から集結した最高の選手達と、最高の試合をする事を約束しますTranslated it says: "I look forward to competing at Nathan's on July 4 in Coney Island, battling against the best eaters from around the world and I promise that this is an event you don't want to miss."
Game on! Who's got 60 in em'???

(P.S.- Be sure to check out DR's take on the event, and watch his YouTube clip of Kobayashi competing against a bear. Announcer on the bear, "He doesn't even know it's a competition!"....He's an f'ing Bear!!!!
