ESPN airs tube-steak tussle

No-bayashi _ hot dog champ loses – Yahoo! News

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 yet
repulsive triumph. Once the contest ended, the runner-up suffered a reversal — competitive
eating-speak for barfing — leading to a deduction from his final total.
Kobayashi finished with 63 HDBs (hot dogs and buns eaten) in his best
performance ever. Kobayashi’s gastric distress was the only sour note in the tube-steak tussle, which aired nationally on ESPN.

That just has to be the best quote ever
