Hot dogs force evacuation of Citizens Bank Park before Phillies game

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks
Fans were escorted out of Citizens Bank Park earlier tonight when the bomb squad was called in to detonate what turned out to be ... wait for it ... several hot dogs in foil wrappers.


"Fans inside the stadium were evacuated, but players remained on the field during the incident. Bomb squad members further investigated the packages and determined they were simply several hot dogs in foil wrappers. Sadly, the wieners were detonated as a precaution."

'Sadly' -- is that so, CBS3? Have you begun some anti-hot dog cruelty campaign that we need to know about?

Is there some shortage of hot dogs in Philadelphia that would make it a sad situation to see a few hot dogs destroyed in the name of better-safe-than-sorry?

CBS3 Philadelphia -- friend of encased meat everywhere. God speed, CBS3. And good luck in your campaign.

This is right up there with the terrorist guacamole on a sidewalk in Chicago. What's for dessert? Plastic-explosive white chocolate fudge?
