    As someone who attends minor league games up here in Des Moines, anyone who doesn't notice the airgun on the back of a moto-cart driving around the backstop, shooting hot dogs, is an idiot.

    You always prepare for a hot dog coming your way.

    I thought this thread was going to be about Prince Charles

    Maybe he's taken a wayward wiener to the smush as well

    I once considered filing suit against the leeeemonade-leeeemonade-leeeemonade-WHOOOO guy at the K just for annoying the piss out of me.

    They did this hot dog thing at a blue jays game a number of years ago and they set the gun (or whatever they use to shoot the hot dogs) a little too high.

    They ended up shooting exploding hot dogs all over the crowd. Little bits and pieces of hot dogs were flying everywhere.

    Classic.

    He should be lucky it was just a hot dog. A few years ago, some poor schmoe sitting in the upper deck at Kaufman was hit by a stray bullet.

    I once saw a play-by-play man hit with a flying t-shirt during a broadcast but not during a commercial.

    The team had just purchased a t-shirt gun. The promo folks had it cranked. The first shot went rising above the crowd, through the open window of the booth and hit the play-by-play man's headset in the right ear, knocking it clear off his head while he spoke.

    Is it just an urban legend that pieces of hot dog fell on a vegetarian woman, who was so traumatized that she sued the team?

    I remember when I was in college they did it at a basketball game. They sent one hot dog into the upper reaches of the arena, sans wrapper. The hot dog kept going, but the foil wrapper just slowly fluttered to the ground.

    Surprisingly Joe Posnanski had a completely awesome take on this in his blog:
