Hi. It's me, the Scoreboard Gourmet. I've been on hiatus, as you have undoubtedly noticed. But now baseball is almost back for real (read: I did not go to Spring Training this year), and a Big Hot Dog arrived in my inbox.
Let's go there first: The Big Hot Dog, made by Gorilla Tango Novelty Meats, is 16" long and 4" in diameter. It's a Chicago-born veal, beef, pork combo that weights 7 lbs. Wow. Until April 30th, 2011, you can buy one for $69.95 ($20 off) -and- $10 goes to Japan via the Red Cross. Anyone who brings one into a game must contact ScoreboardGourmet asap, with photos.
Second: Another email arrived today too: Your 2011 Ticket License Plan has been shipped! Finally. Yea. Opening Day is Thursday, March 31, 2011. Schedule:
