59 1/2: Takeru, You’re Next

Forget about Barry Bonds’ pursuit of Hank Aaron– real sports fans know that the hottest ticket in town this summer will be July 4th’s Nathan’s Hot Dog Eating Contest.

That’s where 6-time winner Takeru Kobayashi, the Michael Jordan of competitive eating, will face his stiffest challenge yet: Joey Chestnut of San Jose, California.

Chestnut just smashed Takeru’s record of 53 3/4 hot dogs by downing a remarkable 59 1/2 Nathan’s franks, complete with buns.

Will the sport’s greatest champion rise to the occasion? Or will he simply prove once again that no dynasty lasts forever? I know what I’ll be watching on July 4th this year. And it won’t be the fireworks.
