Best Attempt at a Hot Dog Homerun that Ended in a Strike Out

The Pickle Dog

Staff Pick

From the half-pound chili-, cheese-, and jalapeño-topped Homewrecker to the classic RiverDog with pickled okra and mustard-based BBQ sauce, the concession stands at Joe Riley Stadium turn out the best hotdog lineup in baseball. New on the roster for 2010: the Pickle Dog, a stunt food worthy of a scene in one of RiverDogs co-owner Bill Murray's least-serious movies. Instead of a bun, there's a massive dill pickle, sliced lengthwise and stuffed with coleslaw and a long wiener. "Could be legendary. Could be revolting," I wrote when the news first broke. Turned out to be the latter. No word yet on whether the Pickle Dog got picked up for the 2011 season.
