It’s baseball season. So the other day we ditched work early to catch a Madison Mallards game. This was my first game.  It won’t be my last.

Hotdogs. Beers. T-shirt cannons.  Oh, and the funniest experience I’ve had at a sporting event.

Each time someone fouled a ball the announcer called out in a calm, cool tone, “wiener.”

At first, I thought I was the only one who heard it because no one was reacting. Then another foul ball. And another after that. Confused (and giggling like an idiot) I asked the guy next to me why the announcer was hazing the players. Turns out it was Oscar Mayer Hot Dog Appreciation Night.  

I can’t wait to hear what the announcer says on Bacon Appreciation Night on July 19th.

Gonna order my tix today.
