"It is possible to die from eating. But I think to be professional means you don't die." (Takeru Kobayashi)

Kobayashi website up and running

Hey, look who's decided to join the conversation! Trencherwomen broke the news on this, but the great Takeru Kobayashi finally has his own website. Just in time to ride a wave of buzz into the Nathan's hot dog contest on Coney Island just three weeks from now. Unfortunately, I tried downloading the Japanese language pack to translate the site, but that worked about as well as if I had done nothing at all.

Don't forget to check out the cool "Kobayashi Famous" logo on the blog portion of the site (modeled after the Nathan's Famous logo). The site gives props to Koby's United Food Fighters Organization, but a Google of the group revals absolutely nothing. I'm assuming it's because whatever's written about it is in Japanese. I'm also assuming that "Food Fighters" in Japan means "Food Eaters of Great Quantity." Eating or fighting, it doesn't really matter, because it would freakin' awesome to see Koby and his crew kicking the crap out a giant lobster dumpling in some dark Tokyo alley (and then devouring it as it lay dying in a pool of its own blood).
