I have TMJ trouble, too, from time-to-time. For me, it's more of a stress-related problem that pops (or clicks) up when work gets too intense. It always goes away after a while.

He should try eating like a normal person for a while, and relaxing.

i was surprised too. i didn't think it was humanly possible to go over 60 hotdogs. kind of bummed that takeru didn't win this year, but it was an excellent showing on the part of both men.

in case you were wondering where it all goes...
Not Kobayashi, but 2 other champion eaters from Japan.

Keep watching to see what happens to their stomachs via a CAT scan. Pretty insane.

The final part they do thermal imagery of the eaters...high temp shows high metabolism maybe?

These are the champions. I actually think this sport is better than golf. Now only if they could get better sponsors.

Thanks for the link. I'm watching one of the related videos. It's kind of cute when she's crying at the end.
