Ok, so I was technically BORN in Wisconsin, just over the border. But I have LIVED in Illinois, specifically the Chicago area my entire life.  Born and raised a die hard Cubs fan.  But I have never, in my life been able to stomach a Chicago style hot dog.  Ketchup is king as far as I'm concerned.  Ketchup and ONLY ketchup is the way I take my hot dog.

A fact that seriously disheartened the Vienna Beef folks because apparently...

So they asked me to try it without Ketchup, which I actually do occasionally when I just grab a PLAIN dog.

But next week I might just have to eat my words, about as literally as you CAN eat words, and try a REAL Chicago style dog because I made THIS pledge...

I'm fairly convinced that a Chicago style dog might be the grosses thing I've ever eaten, but it will totally be worth it if it means a 'W' for the Cubbies.  And what better way to mark a truly memorable day by doing something else I've never done.  You see, 17th will be a once in a lifetime day for my 9 year old, Cubs loving, son and I, as we will be taking part in one of the Priceless Chicago Cubs Experiences you could be entered to win if you visit Master card on Facebook and make and prove a pledge of your own.

For a 9 year old who's starting his sixth season of baseball and proclaims that he will be a Chicago Cub one day, I'm not sure there will be a more memorable day.  Our day at the field starts with on field batting practice, then dinner at the Stadium Club and ends with what we hope will be a winning game!

We will be taking lots of photos that I will share here afterward, but for now, you should head over to Facebook and enter the MasterCard's Priceless Chicago Cubs Pledge for a chance to win a once in a lifetime experience of your own!

  1. You crack me up about the Chicago dogs! I don't like dogs from anywhere though, but I sure do love me some Chicago!

    By the way, yesterday (I think) I got a virus warning over here when I tried to visit. Appears to be all clear now though.


Thanks for leaving me a comment!!
