I am so excited about this weekend! It’s going to be all about sports. I am going to my favorite baseball team’s fan fest, a basketball game and a hockey game. There is one food I must have while watching a sports game – a hot dog. Last year when the Packers played the Steelers I made these mini hot dogs and they were a hit.
According to a 2008 poll conducted by the National Hot Dog & Sausage Council, 63% of fans listed hot dogs as the food they could not live without at the ballpark. The same poll reported that 88% of sports fans have eaten a hot dog in the past year or will eat a hot dog in the upcoming year at a sporting event.
So do your part in helping the hot dog reign supreme at your next sports-watching bash.
