I don't know about you all, but when I watch a game @ Chase field I almost fall asleep during the "Hot Dog Race".
And this is why. It's not interesting or entertaining at all. I imagine that the outcome is pre determined like the WWE etc. And, the hotdogs do not even run the actual bases. Lame right ? I know they are kids and it's supposed to be fun for them but what's fun about running in place ? Sure the kids are on the largest TV in MLB but that doesn't take away from the fact that they are running in place to a crowd that isn't really interested in the race.
I really think in order to make me happy, the team is gonna have to make some changes to the "Hot Dog Race"
1st thing I would do is change it from "Hot Dog Race" to something more with a South West feel. Granted hot dogs are a Baseball food and everything, but let's give it a Desert/Arizona/SW feel......Let's make it a burrito race. Lets have a breakfast burrito vs. a carne asada burrito vs. bean burrito........something like that.
And let's get some kid's in those burritos to run the bases or even some real mascots.
Or...what about a Hot Dog vs. a Burrito vs a Beer ?
I think the crowd would get more behind the the race if it was more interesting and I'm pretty sure I just made it more intersting.
Thoughts bros ?
