Over at MLB.com’s Cut4, they’re holding a fan vote to see who is the top food/drink vendor in all of Major League Baseball. Fans will vote for the best candidate today and tomorrow, and each day’s winner will face off on Friday for the crown. In today’s vote, two Citizens Bank Park vendors are in the running: Beer Pirate and Pistachio Girl. We’re sorry to throw our support behind just one of them, but Beer Pirate is already out of it.
Pistachio Girl, if you don’t know, is suffering from a bit of an injustice:
Fans at Citizens Bank Park know Emily Youcis as “Pistachio Girl” or — informally — as “PISTAAAAAAAAACHIOOOOOOS!” The legend of “Pistachio Girl” has spawned a Facebook fan page and a bevy of YouTube highlight clips.
The irony of Youcis’ nickname is that Citizens Bank Park no longer sells pistachios, so Pistachio Girl has spent the 2015 season selling Cracker Jacks and lemon water ice [wood-er ahys]. But the people have spoken … and started a Change.org petition to bring pistachios back to the ballpark and restore Youcis’ claim to fame.
Pistachio Girl can’t even sell pistachios anymore, so we gotta make sure she trumps this lemonade nobody from Arizona. You can vote over here.
