Best of the wurst: Kobayashi eats 58 brats for win


SHEBOYGAN, Wis. -- Takeru Kobayashi grinded through a record 58 brats at the Johnsonville World Bratwurst Eating Championship on Saturday, easily winning another tasty title and slicing through the record of 34 set last year by Sonya Thomas.

"They're good," Kobayashi said through translator Robert Ikeda. "I want to take some home."

Kobayashi earned $8,000 for his effort. There was no extra charge for the 16,820 calories, 1,450 grams of fat and 19 days worth of the recommended amount of sodium he consumed in front of a crowd of some 3,500 people attending Sheboygan Jaycees Brat Days.

I dunno if I've eaten that many brats in my lifetime (30 yrs old)!

I'm sure some day I'll surpass it this lifetime.
