Who cares about the World Cup anyway? American Joey Chestnut defended his hot dog eating title at Coney Island today, eating 54 hot dogs in ten minutes. It was his fourth title in a row.

Japanese rival Takeru Kobayeshi was arrested after the event as he rushed the stage. Kobayeshi, a six time winner, moved to New York City in an effort to become more familiar with American hot dogs. He is involved in sort of contract dispute with the organizers of the event. Apparently, he wants to have his hot dogs and eat them, too.

It's a shame Kobayeshi would want to tarnish such a dignified event with his childish antics.
