The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council, a real thing, put together a bracket to find the best classic and unique hot dogs in the major leagues. The matchups were all done in Facebook polls, which are a mess, but the Phillies’ Cheesesteak Dog lost out in the first round to a goddamn corn dog from Arizona. What the hell. This season already sucks.
But at least the Council was nice enough to use CBP in their hot dog statistics for the year:
“The National Hot Dog and Sausage Council (NHDSC) estimates that baseball fans will consume more than 18.5 million hot dogs and nearly 4.2 million sausages during the 2015 Major League season. The combined hot dog and sausage total could stretch from Citizens Bank Park in Philadelphia to Chase Field in Phoenix. The hot dog total alone would reach as high as 7,827 Empire State Buildings.”
Phoenix? Just gotta rub that first round loss in, don’t you, Hot Dog and Sausage Council?
Kyle: THE CHEESESTEAK DOG? WHAT THE HELL IS THAT? SOUTH PHILLY DOG ALL DAY, EVERY DAY. AND TOMORROW, TOO.
