David Murphy ready to eat $26 hot dog?
Murphy's teammates agreed. So does Murphy think he could do it?
"If it's plain, I think I could definitely do it," Murphy said. "I'm not a big topping guy. Usually when I eat my hot dog, it's with cheese. If I tried to do it by adding the chili, that would be a challenge. Even with the toppings, I'd be close."
Murphy, who participated in a food challenge as part of a Rangers' TV broadcast in recent years, notes that he's had a one-pound hamburger, though to finish off this dog, he'd have to eat a lot more bread.
"I have trouble keeping weight on," Murphy said. "I don't think I have a tape worm or anything."
So is this ability to consume vast amounts of food without gaining weight a gift or a curse for Murphy?
|Nolan Ryan shares his thoughts on the $26 hot dog being offered at Rangers Ballpark this season. |
Murphy likes the idea of trying something different at the park, like a one-pound dog.
"You're always wanting to see something on the menu besides the norm," Murphy said. "You're used to going to the ballpark and seeing your hamburger, hot dog, popcorn, nachos. It's fun to see something different and this is different."
