Concession food

We're going into the last days of May, and only now has the weather even suggested that it's warm enough to go outside in a short-sleeved shirt.

Spring stinks. It looks like winter's over, the plants look like winter's over, but is winter really over if I'm still plugging in the space heater? **grumble, grumble, Cleveland, grumble**

Anyway, it does look like it starting to truly and forever warm up, which puts me in the mind to maybe go to a baseball game. Watching baseball in the cold and wet is a miserable experience, but a game in the summer heat - classic! Mostly because it's the proper setting for my baseball food - hot dogs and cold sodas, brought to me by a very loud man.

Some foods just don't belong in a baseball concession stand. Some foods, in fact, shouldn't exist at all.

And by "some foods" I mean the Gateway Grizzies new "Baseball’s Best Burger," which consists of a thick, juicy burger topped with sharp cheddar cheese and two slices of bacon.

Doesn't sound so bad, you say? Oh, did I forget to mention that the burger is placed in between each side of a Krispy Kreme Original Glazed doughnut?

Eww. What a way to ruin a burger.

The Gateway Grizzlies were better off with their last two unique concession items: The 2004 "Baseball’s Best Hotdog" had a Black Angus Hot Dog, topped with two strips of bacon, sautéed onions, sautéed sauerkraut and cheddar cheese sauce on a fresh baked bun. The 2005 "Swiss Brat" was a bratwurst with a slice of Swiss cheese in the middle, with sauerkraut on top.
