Holy crap did the hot dog eating contest on Coney Island got a lot of publicity this year.  I get it.  It’s a tradition.  Gross.  But, a tradition to some.  The World is changing.  Baseball is fighting for its Olympic life with ‘climbing’ and ‘wake-boarding.’

The landscape, she is a-changin.  Can you imagine, years from now, the talking heads on sports radio will be ranting about whether Takeru Kobayashi should be in the Competitive Eating Hall-Of-Fame?  KT is AWESOME at his craft.  But, he’s not official.  He’s the bastard prodigy…Pete Rose…Cain instead of Abel…Hagar instead of Sarah…F1 instead of Indycar.  I think you get the point.  Yesterday, he ate 69 hot dogs.  It would have been a world record.  But, he staged his ‘practice event’ away from the official eating event, just down the boardwalk, in protest.  All because KT refuses to sign a contract with ‘Major League Eating.’  So, the official winner was 62 hot dogs gourged by Joey Chestnut.  Joey has won the event 5 years in a row.  Joey is the ‘Jimmie Johnson’ of Eaters.  Check out KT on The Norris & Davis Show Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/NorrisandDavis1057TheFAN

KT HOF in 20??.  Stay tuned.
