Take Me Out To The Ballpark



Blink:
Major league baseball swings into action this week.  While baseball players are deciding on their weapon of choice, the iconic Louisville slugger or a Marucci bat, paramedics are making their decisions on how many defibrillators to have on hand due to the overabundance of ballpark foods on steroids.   

Read On:
For starters, the Phillies will be offering the jaw opener The Wayback Triple Triple Cheeseburger, a nine patty cheeseburger; approximately 2,200 calories and 61 grams of saturated fat.  Below is a list of some of the leading ballpark foods on steroids.

·         Texas Poutine Potato Chip Nachos – Fresh fried, home-made potato chips topped with Texas-style cream gravy, bacon, shredded cheddar cheese with a choice of brisket or southwestern-style chicken.  Don’t forget to ask for some jalapenos.

·         D-Bat Dog – For only $25 at Arizona Diamondback games, baseball fans can now indulge on an 18-inch corn dog stuffed with cheese, jalapenos and bacon with a side of fries.

·         PPP – Pulled Pork Parfait at Milwaukee’s Miller Park.  Looks like a dessert, but is a parfait consisting of pulled pork, mashed potatoes and pork gravy.  Tweet @MillerParkPork. 

·         Three Pound Banana Split – 5,000 calories plus!  Twelve scoops of ice cream, bananas and all your favorite sundae toppings at U.S. Cellular Field (White Sox).  I forgot to mention, the $17 treat is served in a full size batting helmet.

·         The Closer – Available at Pittsburgh Pirates games, a grilled cheese sandwich made with nine cheeses and candied bacon, topped with a healthy apple compote spread. 

Who do you predict will win this year’s MLB’s MVP – Most Valuable Paramedic?
