Exploding Philly Tube Steaks, Game Goes On

Phillies ballpark, Citizens Bank Park, was forced to evacuate by suspicious franks. On Pattison Street between Darien and 11th Streets, several packages of unknown content were found near a ticket office. Police shutdown access to these streets and evacuated all the people in the area outside the park. Inside the park, though, the Phillies and Atlanta Braves along with the fans continued the game.

Phillies VP of Operations Michael Stiles said,
"It was clear from when we looked at it at first glance and when you looked at the debris afterwards, there was packaging and duct tape; I don't see many hot dogs sold here with duct tape. We just did what we felt was appropriate."
What was inside the hotdogs? Well, you don't want to know. No, really. You don't want to know.

The Philadelphia Police Bomb squad took the foil wrapped weenies and blew them to smithereens.

That's nothing compared to the explosion in your gut when you eat the damn things. Don

Hi Indigo.

Since I returned from my trip to Oklahoma I've been feeling like Alice in Wonderland. The Mad Hatter is in charge. This post of yours cements it! Sheesh!

I hate to see two good hot dogs waisted like that...

If there were jalepenios, hot sauce and onions in those dogs, the whole Bomb squad would have been in tears for sure.

I love hotdogs, Don. I don't have the tummy problems because that is what beer is for.

Know what you mean, Gayle. And I've never been to Oklahoma where te wind comes sweepin' down the plain, but I've been to Spain.

OH, rg! You do know how to dress a 'dog.
