Wait Till Next Year

History repeats itself, just like you would expect a stomach full of weiners to do. Takeru Kobayashi, at the ripe age of 27, won won the Nathan's Famous international hot dog eating contest on the Fourth of July for the fifth consecutive time, eating 49 hot dogs in 12 minutes. Good to win the mustard belt, but not enoughto beat his world record of 53 1/2 that he set when he won last year's contest.

Coming in number two, just as she did last year, was Amreica's hope, Sonya Thomas, The Black Widow. She beat her personal best performance from last year and set an American record by downing 37 hot dogs in12 minutes. If Sonya can continue to whittle away the gap between her and Kobayashi, maybe next year will be the year she captures the mustard belt.

Sonya just can't cut the mustard, can she?

I thought the mustard belt was a place, like the borscht belt.
