Let him eat!

As he was being freed from a night in a NY jail, eating champ Takeru Kobayashi, stated that he was “tired and hungry.”  Well, not to worry Kobi! They are letting him eat!  After storming the Coney Island stage following Joey Chestnut’s Victory on the 4th of July, the Major League Eating commissioner stated that Kobayashi has not been banned from participation in future MLE competitions.  I wonder what “The Tsunami” will devour for his next title?

Didn’t know eating was considered an athletic event?  Take a look at some of these records… if putting away this much food isn’t considered superior athleticism, I don’t know what is!

Baked Beans- 8.4 lbs in 2 min 47 sec (Sonya Thomas)

Giant Cabbage- 6 lbs, 9 oz in 9 min (Charles Hardy)

Cow Brains- 57 (17.7 lbs) in 15 min (Takeru Kobayashi)

Salted Butter- 7 Quarter Pound Sticks- yes, that’s 1.75 lbs- in 5 min (Don Lerman)
