Play Ball!!!!!

Monday was opening day of major league baseball. Today is the first home game for the SF Giants.  Bob, my boss, is going to the game - if it's not rained out. I don't know if Bob is excited about the game or getting his first ball park dog of the season. 

Hot dogs always taste better at the game. They're so good, sometimes you even want two.  Bob loves them so much sometimes he goes to the game on his lunch break just to get a dog.  The stadium is not too far from the agency, so don't judge him, yet.

Don and I once did a hot dog tasting with our friends Gina and Peter.  They bought all kinds of hot dogs and had all kinds of toppings - fresh tomatoes, pickles, celery salt, mustard.... I can't remember everything, but it was so much fun.  I don't remember which one I liked.  Too many dogs and too much beer. But who knew hot dogs could taste so yummy outside of the ball park? I do remember that I liked it topped with celery salt. 

Most of the time I just top it with a lot of plain mustard.  Under and over.  Don likes his with mustard, ketchup, relish and hot sauce.  Elli likes hers naked cut up in pennies.  How do you like your hot dog?

  1. I have to say being a Chicagoan, I like my dog Chicago style: mustard, tomato, sport pepper, and celery salt on a poppy seed bun. I stray from the tradition by adding ketchup (a big no no!) and omitting the onions and relish. If you're ever in Chicago, check out Hot Doug's. It's truly an experience. Or if you want to be harrassed, try the Wiener Circle.

  2. I just laughed out loud. Wiener Circle. That's funny!
