Joey Chestnut has been riding a cushy cloud for the last couple of years after Kobayashi ran into controversy with the Coney Island crew and the Nathan’s Hot Dog eating contest. Hey I  love my San Jose main Man Joey Chestnut and I think that Kobayashi is nothing but skinny no talent clown, but what is ying without yang,  what is Luke with out Vader,  what is Angry Birds with out the hog people.  Nothing that’s what.  You need 2 forces that are in full on battle mode at all times. Chestnut holds the record and Kobayashi has the unofficial record. Everyone just pull your crap together and get to Funspot this summer.
