Ketchup On Hot Dogs Ain’t Right

BOSTON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Putting ketchup on a hot dog is the biggest mistake a sports fan can make.

Just ask famed sports radio host Eddie Andelman, who’s eaten thousands of hot dogs and claims to have a PhD in the ballpark staple.

According to Andelman, the only condiments a real sports fan needs on their hot dog are onions, relish, and mustard, and those who glob ketchup on their weiners are “sick.”

He says ketchup ruins the taste of a hot dog and should be banned from the ballpark.

Sans ketchup, hot dogs are the perfect sports food because they’re easy to carry up the aisles at games. Andelman recommends fans follow a simple formula to hot dog heaven and eat one hot dog every three innings.

He’s celebrating Boston dogs this Sunday (May 31) at the 20th Annual Hot Dog Safari, which benefits Cystic Fibrosis research.

They’ll be cooking off about 175,000 hot dogs on 40 grills at the event and Andelman says there are no healthy substitutions like tofu dogs allowed.
