Eating Champ Kobayashi Gets Physical With New York’s Finest

Sunday marked the 95th annual Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest on New York’s Coney Island.  Is there a better way to celebrate the 4th of July than by watching America’s finest athletes shove countless hot dogs in their faces?  Wow, what a grand tradition this event is for all in attendance, but there seemed to be one  missing piece to this messy puzzle!  Ahhh, yes it was the absence of the six-time champion Takeru “Tsunami” Kobayashi.  Well, Kobayashi was in attendance, but not allowed to compete in the competition due to “contractual problems” as sources are indicating. 

However, “Kobe” as he is called made sure that even though he wasn’t allowed to compete, he didn’t leave fans without a show when he rushed the eating stage before NYPD arrested him.  I guess seeing his arch-nemesis, Joe Chestnut take down his fourth consecutive title put Kobayashi in a volatile mood.  After seeing the “tussle”, I think Kobe should stick to eating hot dogs considering the fight he had with police was one of the most pathetic and sad things I have ever seen.  Kobayashi is such a physical specimen that it’s a struggle to lift a toilet seat without breaking into a sweat.  What do you think about this ridiculous debacle?
