July 4th 2008
Kobayishi (2006 Champion) and Chestnut (2007 Champion) tie at 59 each after 10 minutes.
Inevitably a play-off ensues. First man to five wins. It seems Joey Chestnut has more in the tank and extraordinarily wins it by a whisker retaining the Mustard Belt and upholding the dignity of this proud nation.
The event – the Nathan’s Hot Dog eating Championship 2008 (sponsored by Heinz) at Coney Island.
Only in America. Presumably the movie will be called ‘Puked on the 4th of July’
