Serving of the Week

7/06/2009 Posted by Mel Got Served 2 comments

Name: Takeru Kobayashi
SERVED: Each July 4th, my favorite sporting event of the year occurs: the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. For 6 years, on our country's Independence Day, a Japanese monster of the food, Takeru Kobayashi, reigned supreme over the weiner in the Nathan's Contest. 2 years ago, the Mustard Belt (grand prize) was brought back to our native soil by Joey Chestnut, SERVING Kobayashi's winning streak. Last year, the contest ended in a tie, and Joey Chestnut was able to win again in a tie-breaker round- SERVED again! But it was assumed Joey would be a two time victor and this year, he might not win. Well think again doubters! Joey Chestnut won, smashing the world record of 59 dogs, consuming 68 hot dogs in 10 minutes. That's right, Kobayashi is SERVED again! SERVED 64 hot dogs, and SERVED a 2nd place trophy. While it's sad to see a champ fall, it's great to see a former cocky winner completely SERVED! Hey, at least you didn't puke on national TV again. (Images from News-Press.com)

Finally. Kobayashi will think twice about trying to out-eat an American again. I mean, did the Japanese learn nothing from World War II?

Ugh! I am so disappointed that I missed it. We usually watch it every 4th of July but my husband was away and for some reason I forgot about it. Anyway, I'm glad to read your "serving!"
