    World Hot Dog-Eating Champion Crippled by Jaw Injury


    Have you ever seen this guy? I watched a documentary once about people that "work-out" all year for these contests. Bleh!

    I've never heard of "jaw arthritis!

    TOKYO ó A Japanese man who set a world record by wolfing down dozens of hot dogs within minutes has suffered a severe jaw injury due to his rigorous training, making his next title uncertain.
    Takeru "Tsunami'' Kobayashi said he can only open his mouth to make a gap the size of a fingertip after being diagnosed with jaw arthritis.

    I can't imagine the pain. It must feel like a really bad toothache. ((kgeaux)) Can they give you anything for the pain?

    So does he get workman's compensation for his injury?
