Boy, competitive eater/professional crazy person Takeru Kobayashi sure can eat a whole bunch of food. And when better to eat tons of food in a competitive manner than on the Fourth of July? Kobayashi will not be competing in tomorrow's infamous Nathan's Hot Dog Contest on Coney Island — he hasn't competed there since storming the stage and getting arrested in 2010. Instead, he will be be eating in the first-ever Crif Dog Classic in Brooklyn. Below, in honor of the great sport of competitive eating, Kobayashi's greatest hits. Included: a bunch of speed-eating contests, a chicken wing eating record, Kobayashi vs a real-life bear, and more hot dogs than any human being should really consume in one lifetime.
