Hot Dog Gate Turns Positive (Mark Sanchez)
After being crucified for eating a hot dog on the sideline during the Oakland Raiders beatdown, Mark Sanchez is turning lemons — or in this case, hot dogs — into good fortune for others. Sanchez was hammered pretty hard for his late-game snack, but that hasn’t stopped him from doing something good with all the publicity: Donating a thousand hot dogs and hamburgers to a soup kitchen in his area. Hopefully, this will put an end to incessant chirping about Sanchez’ eating habits during football games.
Was seeing Sanchez eat the hot dog eyebrow-raising? Sure, but I don’t think it warranted the quasi media storm that followed. Nevertheless, something good did come out of it, so there is that. If there is a deity out there, Sanchez’ generosity will bring “hot dog gate” to a close.
