Joey Chestnut still champion.

Joey Chestnut still retains NYC hot dog eating championship by beating his Japanese rival, Takeru Kobayashi. Both ate 59 hot dogs in 10 minutes.

The contest went into overtime where they had to eat five more. When it was over, Takeu Kobayashi was left holding a hot dog bun.

"It was crazy," said the 24-year-old Chestnut, who was mentally prepared to eat 70 hot dogs and acknowledged that his body at times almost failed him. "It pushed back against me. I had to push harder. It just didn't want to swallow."


Hard to believe a stomach can hold that much food at one time.

    Hi Tina!
    Yeah, I know what you mean. It's the same way with me on buying adverts on other blogs. I hate it high and can't figure out how to bring it down and make it stay lower.

    Wow. Kobayashi is losing his edge... The man has all kinds of eating titles but he may not be holding them much longer.

    That's quite some talent, to be able to make such a pig of himself! I think this is an emarrassment to the USA--wasting our abundance of food like that when others around the world are starving.
