Joey Chestnut wins again*
Well, Joey Chestnut won the Nathan’s Hotdog Eating Contest today on Coney Island once again, taking home the Mustard Belt for the fifth straight year.
But across the city, Takeru Kobayashi, the guy that won that belt many times before but die to some legal trouble has been banned from the contest, beat Chestnut, and Chestnut’s World Record, by downing 69 hotdogs. That’s one more than Chestnut’s 68 record set in 2009.
But that record didn’t happen on Coney Island. And I guess that’s where it really counts.
