Kobayashi! Nooooo!

I hate that I'm using this source, but there ya go.
How fucking sad is it that the MSN branded home page is using Fox news feeds? You're PART OF A MEDIA COMPANY and you can't produce your own content?

Apparently Takeru Kobayashi (competitive eating champion best known for his way with a hot dog and a glass of water) has developed arthritis of the jaw. My favorite part is reading his blog (this is a google translated link for most of us. This is an original language link for Umbrella) and reading, even in the horrible translation, just how damaged he is and how much this will fuck with his ability to continue his sport. Yes, food eating competitions are fucking idiotic. But forget that for a minute and realize that this is a life altering crippling condition for this guy. And that somehow he's managed to talk about it in terms that make it sound epic. "Some days ago, my jaw seceded the front." Man I wish I could read Japanese right now.
