The Akron Aeros are about as well-run an organization as you’ll see in baseball. And as is the case for any good minor league program, they tend to think outside the box every now and then.â†µ
But this is a little ridiculous.â†µ
The Akron Aeros (Class AA; Eastern League) announced plans for the team’s newest extreme-food item: the "Nice 2 Meat You" Burger, a 1¼ lb. hamburger stuffed with a half-pound hot dog and a quarter-pound of bacon, cheese and onions. Mmm.â†µ
Well, I guess it’s right in line with their other offering, a hot dog, in a bratwurst, in kielbasa. While other teams are cutting back on the decadent eats (and throwing some salads and sushi at you instead), the Aeros are embracing American obesity. And that’s alright with me.
