PHILADELPHIA, PA - JUNE 02: The Phillie Phanatic dressed in Greek ethnic clothing fires hot dogs into the stands during a game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park on June 2, 2016 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

Today is the first Dollar Dog Night of the season at Citizens Bank Park. I think about the “glory days” of Phillies baseball from 2012 to 2016, also known as my college years. The team stunk, tickets were dirt cheap, and dollar dog nights would be an easy dinner. My record was 9, I bought 10, and for the first time in my life, couldn’t finish the food in front of me. If I really put my mind to it, I could still get 9 down and maybe push for that 10th, but with the pitch clock, who knows how many I could actually eat.

I decided to ask around the station to see how many they think they could eat on Dollar Dog Night if they actually tried:

  • The John Kincade Show

    John Kincade – 5
    Bob Cooney – Didn’t answer. Didn’t respect my intense deadline on this story. I thought us journalists stuck together. Sad.
    Pat Egan – 5
    Connor Thomas – 8
  • The Anthony Gargano Show

    Anthony Gargano – 6
    Yours truly – Just to beat Connor, 9
  • The Best Show Ever

    Tyrone Johnson aka the man who doesn’t eat meat – 13!!!
    Hunter Brody – 8
    Jenn Scordo – 2
    Dylan Mackinnon – 10
    Ricky Bottalico – Like Bob Cooney, didn’t answer. He must be jealous of my incredible baseball career. Jealousy shouldn’t get in the way of friendship.
  • The Devon Givens Show

    Devon Givens – 5
    Tom Alvord – “I could get double digits easy”
    Ray Dunne – “5 or 6. Depends on the beverage situation.”
  • Other Members of the Station

    Jamie Lynch – 6 “7 would be my max”. Come on softy, get to 8.
    Matt Minarik – 7
    Tyler Zulli – 6
    Mike Vito – 8
