The Great One.

    The Great One.

    Today we played the first of two festival shows in Japan. The show was amazing, but one of the best highlights, by far, was the appearance of "The Great One." That's right, we invited the legend of competitive eating, Takeru Kobayashi, and he showed up! The man is arguably the greatest "food-fighter" to ever grace the sport. He won the coveted Mustard Yellow Belt by winning the annual Nathan's hot dog eating contest six years in a row. He can be credited as single-handedly bringing international interest to the sport of competitive eating. So, to say the least, we were honored by his presence.

    Thanks to everybody who was at the show, and special thanks to the great Kobayashi for spending the day with us.
