Hotdog Eating Contest World Champion Takeru Kobayashi

Hotdogs may have been invented in America - but when it comes to eating them, the Japanese are still the best on the planet. At the 2006 World Hotdog Eating Championships on July 4th on Coney Island, NY, Takeru Kobayashi broke his own world record by eating 53 and 3/4 hotdogs in just 12 minutes to win the title for the sixth straight year! That's more than one dog every 15 seconds!

Takeru Kobayashi proved he's the fastest eater on the planet, even though he was pushed by American record-holder, Joey Chestnut, who ate 52 hotdogs at the 2006 contest. Takeru is a lean, mean, 131-pound eating-machine who had to beat out other hardcore eaters from around the globe. For being the world champion, Takeru Kobayashi picked up a trophy, the championship belt and, most importantly, a year's supply of hotdogs.

Who's better? I vote FC Barcelona because Messi, Neymar and Suares are SUPER POWER (but not in Italy).

Where I live, NASCAR is considered a sport. I hate it. It's SO boring.
