Tsunami suffers possible career ending injury

Some folks have called this guy the worlds most dominant athlete. Let's face it, all of us at one time or another have marveled at this dude's ability to stuff an entire 4th of July barbeque down his pipe. Accordning to Fox News, "Tsunami" Kobayashi can now only open his mouth to make a gap the size of a fingertip after being diagnosed with jaw arthritis.

According to Kobayashi's blog: "My jaw refused to fight any more.'' The injury occurred only a week after the slender 29-year-old started training to win his seventh straight title at the annual July 4 Nathan's Famous hot dog eating event.

When I first read the title for this article, I immediately thought he might have blown out an intenstine or something, but I suppose a screwed up jaw is almost as fitting.

Update: ESPN did a great spot with their best color commentators lamenting Kobayashi's injury. John Kruk: "He's just afraid of Joey Chestnut." BWAHAHAHA
