Sausage Race Turns Serious
The Official Site of the Milwaukee Brewers ^ | July 10, 2003 | Abe Winter and Adam McCalvy / MLB.com

MILWAUKEE -- Pittsburgh first baseman Randall Simon was interrogated by the Milwaukee County Sheriff's Department after a strange incident in which he struck a participant in the popular sausage race during Wednesday's game between the Brewers and Pirates.

The race, which takes place after the sixth inning, features runners wearing costumes of various sausages -- bratwurst, hot dog, Polish and Italian. As the runners passed the Pittsburgh dugout, Simon hit the Italian sausage with his baseball bat, perhaps harder than anticipated

In KC they have the Condiment races.

Ketchup and mustard are outclassed by relish.

Hey... he's a pirate. Pirates do things like that.

I'm afraid I'm about to pollute your mind forever--at least, I've never been able to forget this since I first heard it. So, fair warning!

As you know, the Japanese have adopted baseball fiercely, but they've also had to incorporate many of the associated customs.

The Japanese term for "hot dog" is............................





"Hotu Dogu."

If I remember correctly, that was the only hit Simon had all week.

Simon was charged with felony assault for his attack on the Italian Sausage. Simon also threw a baseball at the hotdog, who dodged the attack; therefore, he will also be charged with a “missed a weiner.”

No, I was not. I heard that Simon volunteered to buy an entire section’s worth of tickets - in Milwaukee, to a game NOT against the Pirates - and gave them to underprivileged kids and their families as a way to apologize to the Brewers and the community.

A friend of mine is borrowing two sausage costumes today from Klements for his restaurant opening day.

The Klements rep told him that they usually charge a deposit for cleaning the hot dog - due to re-enactments - the others usually don’t get too dirty

When I was little, that “skinless weiners” package used to make me cringe.

I tried keyword “sausage” first and got nothing, then “sausage” in the title and it was the next to last by date before old articles go wherever they go on the server. Another year might have been too late.

I don’t want to know how you knew that 2003 thread even existed.

When "Swedish Flamingos Massacred by Frenzied Anteater Attack" gets 3000+ replies, you know something like this had to have been posted, probably at least three times.

He is a ghetto piece of #### for doing that.

Yes, it’s a strange story.

For those who were around for the original thread, maybe they remember that when we post, we should always off “italians” because they didn’t off themselves.*

*/odd and obscure reference. ;o)
