In true celebration of Americana on the 4th of July, Kobayashi won the Nathan’s hot dog eating competition in Brooklyn by eating 53 3/4 dogs in 12 minutes. You can watch the competition over at ESPN. Kobayashi trailed Joey Chestnut, the winner of this years Wing Bowl 14; the same guy who drank a gallon of milk in about 40 seconds, for the majority of the competition. The commentary done on this video is simply poetic, metaphoric bliss. Give it a go.
-Wiener-eater wins 6th straight [Boston]
-Where will A.I. end up? [Philly]
-Italians are better than Germans. It’s true. [FIFA]
-Have a little bit of trouble capturing those fireworks last night on the Parkway with your digital camera? Alas, the Geeks Guide to Fireworks. [Wired]
-I would just like to note that Philly.com sucks. I go to Philly.com in search of some photos of last night’s show on the Parkway, some fireworks, etc. and all I get are photos of a parade in Lansdowne. In contrast, when I go to The NY Times website, the first thing I see is a photo of Fireworks over NYC. Maybe the new owners of the Inquirer will hire someone with some design skills.
-A little Trey on Watchtower in Camden, some burgers on the grill, some sun on the beach in Jersey, a guy in a blue suit with a red cape who saves the world, a Phillies walk off win, a little Lionel Richie , even sans All Night Long, topped off with some wet fireworks and some funnel cake make for a happy ending to a stellar holiday weekend.
