I have had many a great hot dog within the proximity of Yankee Stadium. But not inside. I like to think that, even if I made that first billion, I would not pay the exorbitant price of a hot dog in the stadium simply because I’m a captive audience.
I just know I couldn’t enjoy it, even if it were of good quality and nice and hot. The prices are just wrong…wrong, I tell yuh.
I paid $4 apiece for two Hebrew Nationals (probably eights or 10s) at the NYC Auto Show today, and that was about my price limit. They were good, though…even if they had run out of sauerkraut and I had to use those absurd relish packs Hope that place near Citi is good. It’s still close enough to the park to be part of the whole ambience thing.
When I am king, all the parks, major league and minor, will vend the three most favorite hot dogs of the region, prepared by skilled, caring cooks, and sold at prices on a par with those purveyors outside the ballpark. If the kings of yore had aspired to such altruism, surely the monarchical system would not have tumbled as it had.
