I don't go to as many football, baseball, basketball, hockey games as I used to, just wondering, what new fare are they serving that's out of the ordinary these days in stadiums? Asking because I saw this:

My wife has gotten the "Slider Dog" multiple times at Indians games. She likes it, it has Mac n Cheese, bacon, and FruitLoops on top of a hot dog

PNC park also has this one, caramel sauce, jalapenos, cracker jacks, and Mac n Cheese

Here's one thats in the Brewers Stadium. A pulled pork parfait with mashed potatoes instead of ice cream

The Tigers also have a poutine hot dog and a bacon egg and cheese dog

One of the most unique I heard of back when I worked in Minor League Baseball was the "Luther Burger", and then the Wilmington team came up with the Hot Dog version of it. Pretty interesting to say the least.....

Lots of fancy, strange stuff.

But the best is the pork loin sandwich at Doylestown (OH) Chippewa HS football games.

When I started going to Fenway Park as a young boy in the 1950s, box seats were three dollars, bleacher seats were seventy-five cents, and the thirty-five cent hot dogs, although I ate them anyway, sucked. (Better hot dogs at Joe & Nemo's cost a dime each back then.)

For tonight's game against the Dodgers, box seats are over a grand each, 350 for bleachers, and while I won't be there, the hot dogs, now probably ten bucks each instead of thirty-five cents, will most likely still suck.

I always bought Italian sausage subs with peppers and onions from the street vendors outside, and I highly recommended that the young ones with their thousand dollar tickets do the same..

As for me, I'm getting a whole bunch of stuff at Taco Bell, some Guinness stout,  and will be watching on TV.

My man cave will be warmer than Fenway.

Good point! Some of the small market teams, like the Indians, gripe about how people don't come out to the park and spend money on seats and concessions! Is it any wonder? We don't have the mobs of brainless millionaires that the larger cities do. 

As far as the "Slider Dog " goes, there is much better fare available at the Indian's ballpark than that! It looks disgusting!

Umm, I see mostly families when I go to games. The millionaires are in the luxury boxes. 😛

I go to games on "dollar beer nights". That usually saves me a car payment. 😀

Never have purchased anything at a sports event. I take a flask of coffee and that's me done, its all a rip off. The sport is what matters!

Can't get away with that here in the US. I worked security for 2 years at Gillette Stadium and you would have either had your flask taken or told to make the trek back to your vehicle to put it away.

    • It's speculation that doesn't actually matter. GOAT is not the longest driver or we'd already be throwing Cameron Champ's or Jamie Sadlowski's names in the discussion.
    • How far would golf's legends drive the ball using modern equipment? At the 2016 Ryder Cup, the 6-foot-5 Thomas Pieters belted a drive 324...   An interesting article on how players way back would have driven the ball with today's ball and equipment.  I didn't realize that Jack had driven the ball 341 yards in a longest drive competition when he was 18.  
    • Oy. I don't give a shit about two top ten finishes in a decade. Nor am I comparing Jack to Vijay Singh, a guy whose putting stroke has been AWOL since roughly 2011. He wasn't. That's easily refuted. As for straighter you're not comparing like to like - you don't know what the fairway widths were, how far the ball bounced, etc. But we do KNOW that Tiger was longer than Jack. Tiger at 43 with a fused back is longer than Jack was when Jack was 40, 41, 42, or 43. Tiger @ 43: 297.8 Jack @ 40: 269.0 Jack @ 41: 264.3 Jack @ 42: 264.6 Jack @ 43: 266.1 Tiger was almost 30 yards longer at 43 than Jack was at 40, 41, 42, or 43. Now, several posts in, you're changing that up to say that, given modern equipment or whatever, Jack would probably have been as long as Tiger. But that's not what you said. Uhhhhh… He didn't do that. Neither did I. No they aren't. Furthermore, if all Tiger had to do was hit the ball 266 yards, he could probably hit 80% of the fairways. Fairways that are likely narrower, etc. So you lost the distance one, and if you want to measure "accuracy" by "fairway hit percentage" I again will point out you're not comparing like to like. They aren't playing the same golf courses, the same fairways, or hitting it the same distances. Furthermore, and more importantly, I don't care about stats like this when determining who the GOAT is. If you do, that's cool, but what I care about is wins, dominance, scoring averages, that sort of thing. I don't care who had a better short game (Tiger by far), who was a better putter (tie?), who hit a better 7-iron (almost surely Tiger), or whatever. I care about Ws. So not only are you provably wrong on distance, possibly off-base on accuracy, but you're arguing about things that most people don't even care about. Nobody considers Calvin Peete in the GOAT discussion because of how accurate he was off the tee. Huh? No. 🤦‍♂️ Uhhh, according to Jack, it was 118 MPH. I call bullshit on that. Oy.

    • I’ve never been one to sit on my donkey for too long. The past four and half decades have pretty much been work for me , as so I know, for many others as well.  Developing my golf game will (not) dominate my new found free time. It will though give me a new avenue of pursuits that I hope will keep my mind expanding. Thanks for the input and reply. 
    • That sort of extrapolation is not possible.  You are talking that he would be hitting the golf ball further than the average long drive competitor. I am not buying it. He would be one of the longer hitters on tour. Jack is not the physical freak like Dustin Johnson. I would put him probably a top 10 in distance yearly if he was in his prime competing today.
