Eating Champion Crowned

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, the Alka-Seltzer U.S. Open of Competitive Eating was under way this weekend in Las Vegas, NV. Today, the competition wrapped up. As in the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating competition over the Fourth of July, Takeru Kobayashi and SonjaThomas proved to be in the class of the field. And once again, it was Kobayashi who took home the crown. During the course of the competition, Kobyashi set a new world record for pasta eating. In addition to that record, Kobayashi also owns the world record for hot dogs, rice balls, hamburgers and cow brains. Mmmm, mmmmm.
