    You might want to give that hot dog another look before eating it.
    A decent piece of reporting by ESPN. Here's a link to the full report, although it's only for strong stomachs. For anyone living in Florida, you definitely want to give this a look.

    Pretty good stuff.

    Interesting to see how a lot of venues in the same city or region (Pittsburgh for instance) have roughly the same batting average. Also in the case of Chicago, well that's Chicago for you.

    Sun Life Stadium was disturbing. Slime in frozen alcholic drink machines? SLIME????

    At least this will curb public drunkenness.

    The Indianapolis Star had a report awhile back saying that Lucas Oil Stadium had more violations by miles than anyone else serving food. The stadium blamed the large number of mice on the RCA Dome destruction and convention center construction stirring up mice, but you still have to get rid of them.

    I wonder, too, how many violations are a result of untrained volunteers -- the booster clubs and the like that so often work concessions for charity -- not knowing how to keep things clean.

    There's nothing new. Food goes through a nasty process and anyone who has worked in a fast food joint knows that. Stadium food is fast food. Nuff said.

    Or just a bunch of deadbeat workers in general. Have you seen some of the people working the concession stands?

    Noticed every place in Canada got solid rankings. Every place in Florida was pretty poor.

    most of this is much ado about nothing. if you live in a municipality where they post the health inspection reports online, every restaurant gets nailed for a few violations every time. and that includes the supposedly high class elite restaurants. if you want to make sure your food was handled perfectly, eat at home. is anyone shocked that fast food isn't handled perfectly? come on.

    I agree with lower-case leo. Stadium food? Heaven forbid ESPN should do any real investigating in sports. It's like newspapers and nursing home abuse -- it's always there on a slow day.
