It’s no Strasburger, but the Rangers will sell a $26 hot dog

We hope it comes with more mustard than a Nolan Ryan fastball.

The Rangers plan to sell a one-pound frankfurter for $26 at concession stands starting on Opening Day. Billed as the Champion Hot Dog, it will be hoisted on to a two-foot-long bun. Toppings included chili, sauteed onions and shredded cheese.

According to the concessionaire, the plan is for it to feed three or four people. Or CC Sabathia when the Yankees come to town.

    Ironically, the Rangers actually have a Strausborger. His name is Ryan.

    I know ballparks prices are outrageous, but 26 bucks for a 1# dog is outrageous. And sharing? Bah.

    NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE. That is all. Good night.

    In TX, it feeds a party of one.

    I’ll stick to the “Dollar Hot Dog Night”. You have to go to Ranger’s games to know what this is.

      I don’t know. Seems pretty self explanatory.

    • goforthanddie - Mar 23, 2012 at 9:18 PM

      Maybe Rangers fans need “Dollar Hot Dog” explained to them. Folks that passed the third grade have a pretty good idea.

    Oscar Meyer isn’t even an all beef hot dog. I can only imagine what byproducts are in it.

    • goforthanddie - Mar 24, 2012 at 7:58 PM

      Yeah, except for the all-beef hot dogs they sell every day in all finer supermarkets.

    Make sure there’s plenty of paper in the johns.

    Guys if your date can swallow this two foot hog without choking..well you have a keeper!

    • Glen - Mar 24, 2012 at 7:56 AM

      Yeah, because I really need a woman who can handle 24 inches.

      I’d say she’s a keeper if she can’t come close to that.

      I’d say a chick experienced with handling two feet of tubed meat might be someone to run away from.

    The Rangers may already have a promotional opportunity waiting in the form of
    this guy.

      Nice find, great name.

  12. irishhamr - Mar 24, 2012 at 9:59 PM

    I thought they were only selling them in the restaurant.

  13. losangelasbasketball - Mar 24, 2012 at 11:58 PM

    1 lb Frankfurter = about 4 hotdogs
    4 hotdogs / $26 bucks = $6.50 a dog
    Seems legit…

    • foreverchipper10 - Mar 26, 2012 at 12:52 PM

      I was wondering how many dogs it would take to make up 1lb. I could probably eat this myself if I really put my mind to it.
