Takera Kobayashi Shows American Football Fans How To Eat

I was at a friends Super Bowl party this past Sunday and ate a couple of Peirogis, some Kielbasa, a small pulled pork sandwich, four Buffalo Wings, a bowl of Buffalo Chicken Chili, and a bowl of regular Beef Chili, a wallet size section of a cold cut calzone, some amazing guacamole, a slice of cheese cake, a Rice Krispie Treat, two Jell-O Shots(Vodka), and four beers. Yes, I'm a pig. But it was all so delicious and next to Thanksgiving, Super Bowl Sunday is the next biggest day Americans throw all gastro-intestinal caution to the wind and indulge in huge amounts of deadly eats. Still doesn't make it right. But this is America and that's how most of us participate in Sports; as voraciously consuming spectators. Keep in mind I did it all in approximately 4 hours. Still, not right.
But could I take down a Pizza in 1 minute? No way. Maybe three slices at most. Professional eater Takeru Kobayashi(check his stats here) did just that at what looks like a real sausage fest of a Super Bowl party. Apparently you can hire the eating machine for events starting at $1500. I guess chowing down like a ravenous Hyena can be a lucrative career. I'd love to hire him to walk into an executive luncheon buffet and tell him to go crazy. That would be money well spent.
In this video he takes down a medium pizza in exactly 60 seconds. Without even getting any on his sweater. That's a pro! I have to work on my game.
Then there's always the inevitable question, "How'd it come out?" Fiber is this man's friend.
