    This is a class sport

    Kobayashi -- who took home the title every year from 2001 to 2006 -- did not compete because of a contract dispute with Major League Eating.

    The whole thing looked staged to me. And they are getting a whole day or two extra face timke outta this.

    But Kobi really is in a dispute. He doesnt want to sign the MLE contract because it would not let him enter other events from other orgs that pay more.

    I thought for sure he would at kleast conmpete in the hot dogs but MLE stood by there guns and didnt give in. He had a shot at beating chestnut this year as Chestnut only ate 54 dogs in 10 minutes.

    But Eater-X said the heat really plumped the dogs up and mafe them hard to manuever. Whatever that Means.

    I think we have another steroid scandal in our midst. Kobayashi used to be quite muscular. Now he's just another skinny guy in the crowd. Who knew steroids could also improve eating volume. Is there anything they can't do? :)
