Meet the 66-Pound Hot Dog Sundae
The guys from Epic Meal Time have outdone themselves with the creation of a 66-pound hot dog, in honor of the minor league Empire 66ers. Not only does it weigh 66 pounds, but also it's made from 66 ingredients, including bacon chili, pad thai, chimichurri, Beluga caviar and donuts. Hungry yet?
Ice Cream Sandwich Joke of the Day
Continuing with the food theme, Mariners minor leaguer Jesus Montero tried to attack a scout over an ice cream sandwich. Montero, who was coaching first base (as minor leaguers do) for double-A Everett, was getting heckled by the scout for lack of hustle. When he returned to the dugout, he was delivered an ice cream sandwich from the scout as a joke. Montero didn't think it was funny and grabbed a bat to attack the scout but was held back by teammates.
