A runner in the Royals hot dog race was foiled by his pants falling down

Monday August 11th, 2014

The Kansas City Royals hot dog race did not go well for one child, who repeatedly fell to the ground thanks to a pair of oversized pants.

The unfortunate contestant was racing as mustard (an obvious favorite of this site), when his pants failed him and sent the frankfurter down to the warning track twice while a Royals employee tried in vain to get his pants back in place.

Luckily, the third place prize for Sunday's hot dog race was a lifetime of therapy.
