Takeru Kobayashi Offers Terrible Example of Overcoming Adversity for Red Sox in Need of Rebound (Video)

The last couple of games for the Red Sox have not gone according to plan. Luckily, they’re fighting through it and will have another chance to get a win on July 4 against the A’s.

Takeru Kobayashi, on the other hand, isn’t so much fighting through his troubles as around them. Once again, the competitive eater refused to come to an agreement with Major League Eating and didn’t go head-to-head against Joey Chestnut for the hot dog-eating crown.

Let’s hope the Red Sox don’t try to take their ball and go home like Kobayashi seems to have done.
