Finally! America back on top!

In competitive hot dog eating that is.

From Larry McShane by way of the Wasington Post:
In a gut-busting showdown that combined drama, daring and indigestion, Joey Chestnut emerged Wednesday as the world's hot-dog-eating champion, knocking off six-time winner Takeru Kobayashi in a record-setting triumph.

Chestnut, the great red-white-and-blue hope in the annual Fourth of July competition, broke his own world record by inhaling 66 hot dogs in 12 minutes -- a staggering one every 10.9 seconds -- before a screaming crowd in Coney Island.
About time the USA is back on top.

Too bad about the America's Cup.
