We will all be stuffing ourselves to the point of bursting on Thursday when we partake in the annual Thanksgiving Day tradition of gorging ourselves on turkey and all the trimmings. Competitive eating chamion Takeru Kobayashi will take that tradition to an extreme Wednesday night when he attempts to set the world record for turkey eating.â†µ
Kobayashi will attempt to set the record Wednesday beginning at 6 p.m. from Turtle Bay on 2nd Avenue in New York City.
You can head to Turtle Bay to watch the event in person, or you could watch via UStream.â†µ
Kobayashi is a six-time champion of the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, having won that event every year from 2001-2007.â†µ
If you are into these things, you might already know that the Turkey Eating World Championship\ was held Tuesday morning in Times Square. Sonya 'The Black Widow' Thomas ate 5.25 pounds of turkey in 10 minutes to win the eventâ†µ
