How does Jenna Jameson not have this problem?


"Jaw Arthritis" has afflicted that little Japanese guy who always wins the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest. As a result, Takeru Kobayashi is pulling out of this July 4th's festivities.

Now I did a little digging and it turns out that before today's announcement, Kobayashi was even-money according to Vegas odds, he wasn't the favorite to win-- that honor went to the American Joey Chestnut who had been rated a 4-5 odds favorite. I smell a rat- I think Kobayashi is trying to skew the odds so he will become a distant candidate, and he'll re-enter the contest at the very last minute. If you have a bookie, bet on Kobayashi now!

Thanks Joe!

That Kobayashi guy (or "Mr. Sparkle," if you will) is jacked by the way. Have you seen his freaking abs? Dude looks like he's cut from wood.

Kind of odd for a guy who makes his living inhaling hot dogs.

Didn't we unseat a Congressman last year for asking pages to do that?

Great title. I know Toasty already said that, but when he's right, he's right.

"Hai! Mr. Sparkle is disrespectful to botulism!"

Damn you Adam, you got me going... You were 100% right by the way: It looks like Kobayashi may compete after all. If only Rickey was a degenerate gambler...

Oops. I didn't know Rickey out-sourced this blog.
