Training... Black Widow Style!

The countdown to Tuesday's big Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest is on. With just over 48 hours to go the question on everybody's mind seems to be whether or not Joey Chestnut can beat Kobayashi. But don't rule out Sonya "The Black Widow" Thomas. Something tells me that the cagey competitive eating champ has been holding back, waiting for the right moment to strike.

I still think Kobayashi wins the whole thing, but I predict Chestnut will go down to The Black Widow for second place.

Want to know how she does it? The Wall Street Journal recently ran this feature on how Thomas keeps in top competitive eating shape.
