A young Angels fan was caught on camera struggling to eat a hot dog on Tuesday night, and gave viewers a lesson in perseverance.
The little fan's first hurdle came when the hot dog and bun together were too big to fit in his mouth, which led to a bit of a mess and the hot dog beginning to come free from its nest.
Then things took a turn for the worse as the condiment-slicked treat slipped and fell down to the young man's seat.
Many spectators would give up their quest to eat the hot dog right then, but our protagonist refused to quit, picking up the loose hot dog and opting for the separate hot dog and bun method preferred by competitive eaters.
Look out Matt Stonie, this youngster could be gunning for your hot-dog-eating crown sooner than you would think.
