Not to sound like some sort of jingoist wingnut, but the world hot-dog eating crown should never, ever be won by someone who isn't an American.
NEW YORK -- Joey Chestnut reclaimed the top spot at the annual hot dog eating contest on Coney Island on Friday after first tying with archrival Takeru Kobayashi in a 10-minute chow-down, then beating him in a five-dog eat-off.
. . .
"He wanted it, but I needed it," Chestnut said of his diminutive Japanese rival.

So did we all, Joey. Thank you!!
