Mike in a Minute: MLB FoodFest

I went to the first-annual MLB FoodFest this weekend, and tried as many different ballpark foods as I could in 2 hours. Every dish got a one-word review. Mostly because that’s all I had time for between bites.

Looking back, my favorites were:

  1. Arizona Diamondbacks: Churro Dog
  2. Texas Rangers: Buffalo fried chicken glazed donut sandwich
  3. Houston Astros: Fried chicken and mashed potato waffle cone

VERY mad they ran out of Florida Marlins bacon-wrapped plantains. Now I’ve gotta go back next year.

Day In Their Life: WWE’s Braun Strowman

Braun Strowman: WWE superstar. 6-foot-8, 385 pounds.

Me: WWE fan. 5-foot-8, 180 pounds.

The Monster Among Men consumes 15,000 calories a day, anchored by his favorite thing to order at Chipotle: a 2-pound, 1,460-calorie bowl built around three servings of steak and two of chicken. To get pumped for WrestleMania, I tried it myself for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The only thing pumped afterward was my stomach.

Check out the rest of my “Day in Their Life” series. And keep the bathroom clear.

New reels for 2018!
