I'm Back From Vegas; Happy 4th Of July; Kobayashi Arrested At Hot Dog Eating Contest | Sharapova's Thigh

Hey gang. I see Fly made a few posts about a couple of his favorite things to do: Write about Twilight and make fun of me. While he may have gotten a smirk out of that, I can assure you he didn't have as much fun over the last few days as I did in the one they call "Sin City": Las Vegas, Nevada.

This was my first trip back to Vegas in a few years. I went three times I believe in about a 15 month period a few years ago, and the itch was back. I celebrated a couple birthdays, including my friend's 21st, and my mom's birthday. So as you'd expect, it was quite a shit show.

Hundreds of drinks were consumed in our group, and money was actually won for the most part, something I'm certainly not used to. By the way, if you want to drink and gamble for cheap, I highly recommend Casino Royale and O'Sheas. You'll thank me later.

But Vegas is done and I'm back in Denver, Colorado, where it's been hailing and raining on much of this Fourth of July afternoon. I've yet to do anything for the day, but hopefully you're having a spectacular holiday.

Happy fourth of July from the Thigh!

Oh, and I leave you with this...

Takeru Kobayashi, a six-time winner of Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest, was in attendance at the annual event today in Coney Island, New York. However, he wasn't competing, due to a labor impasse with Major League Eating.

Instead, Kobayashi went onto the stage in protest after Joey Chestnut won the event, wearing a "Free Kobi" t-shirt.

The NYPD didn't take long to get Kobayashi off of the stage. In fact, they even arrested him. Kobayashi was charged with resisting arrest and trespassing.

Here's video of the incident:
