Kobayashi may skip hot dog eating contest

NEW YORK

/*Joey Chestnut*/ beat out /*Takeru Kobayashi*/ the last three years and Kobayashi won six years straight before that.

This /*Fourth of July*/, Kobayashi may be sitting out of the contest on Coney Island.

That's because the Japanese eating sensation has not agreed to a contract with the organizers. He doesn't want to sign an exclusivity clause.
