I, like all baseball fans, am thankful that basketball season has finally drawn to a close (and hockey as well). Warm weather was made for the national pastime...baseball. Still, basketball has legions of fans and the finals matchup pitted fans from California against a place with some of the most ardent fans in all of sports: Cleveland.
While Cleveland came out on the short end of the stick, America’s sport paid homage to one of the Cleveland Cavalier’s grittiest players: Matt Dellavedova. Just south of Cleveland is the tire capital of the the world, Akron, Ohio. The aptly named RubberDucks are introducing the Delly Dog. Using a play on the Cavaliers player’s nickname and the word “deli,” this delicatessen in a bun features an all beef frank, ham, salami, provolone cheese and stadium mustard. Sounds like a dog that demands a side of potato salad.
The RubberDucks are proud of their dog lineup. Last year, fans asked me if I had stopped by. Unfortunately, I couldn’t make it but am trying this season to test the offerings the RubberDucks are touting. Including the “Three Dog Night.”
Once again, the minor leagues show their culinary creativity and put out a dog worth blogging about. I hear they have a pretty nice ballpark as well. The next time you are in the Buckeye State, down a Delly Dog and be my guest blogger and tell us about it.
