Competitive Eating

2011_kobayashi1.jpgJapanese hot dog eating champ Takeru Kobayashi has been removed from the Nathan's "wall of fame." He refused to sign a contract with a professional eating league, which meant that he could no longer compete, but he also disgraced himself by bum-rushing the stage at last year's event. His image was replaced by a picture of Sonya “The Black Widow” Thomas. [NYP]
