I know some bloggers who disable their comment sections when the Rays are at Fenway and/or the Red Sox are at Tropicana Field. That's what makes this news so exciting: This season at Tropicana Field you can get a Fenway Frank. I'm totally misleading you sort of. Kayem - the Official Hot Dog of the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Park - is now also the Official Hot Dog and Sausage of the Tampa Bay Rays and Tropicana Field.
Thanks to Amanda Rykoff for the photo. That's me and Rebecca Glass and her boy who covers (as in writes about) the Trenton Thunder. It's mid-rain delay and my many peanuts have hit the table. Later, around inning 2, Rebecca will blame the presence of the Red Sox peanuts for the fact that the Yankees are then losing to the Phillies. I assure her the Red Sox peanuts are the worst peanuts in baseball. Later, when we pull ahead, it's clear that I am right. As you can imagine, we discovered the Yankees peanuts (Bazzini!) to be the best peanuts in baseball. Full disclosure, this statement may only be true if you exclude those damn delicious fleur de sel Blue Jays peanuts from contention. Just reporting the facts. More photos on loan from Amanda to come. Go Yankees!
Boomer's bbq between HR derby and allstar game. long line for pulled pork or chicken or roast pork or st louis style ribs 575, or hoagies, also 575, an unappealing name for heroes, in case I've not mentioned that before. also unappealing: all the phillies fans in their brand new jerseys
