Spike TV aired last night a Turkey Eating Competition...

Each of the Major League Eaters started off with a 20 pound Turkey. They had a total of eight minutes to each as much of the turkey as possible.

Patrick Bertoletti won the competition by scarfing down around 6.9 pounds of Turkey.

Takeru Kobayashi came in to the contest still with that jaw problem and completely shut down around one minute into the competition. I could not believe what I was seeing it. He came back a few minutes later to eat some more at a very slow pace.

They have the whole show online with the Cranberry sauce eating competition as well.

Ack! I knew there was something I missed last night. Poor Kobayashi, he would have smoked them all if not for his injury.

It would have been a shootout between Takeru Kobayashi, Patrick Bertoletti, and Joey Chestnut.

Takeru Kobayashi really needs a six month break.
