The famed and beloved Dodger Dog (well beloved by Dodger fans at least ) is the line for some limelight, with a "major award" pending. One of the few remaining links to the days when the team relished World Series titles, has been nominated by AOL CityGuide for its City's Best Hot Dogs 2007 in Los Angeles.
The Dodger Dog faces very hot competition, including such grizzled veterans as Carney's, Hot Dog on a Stick, Jack's Diner & Billiard Club, Jody Maroni's Sausage Kingdom, Nathan's Famous, Skooby's Hot Dogs, Weiner Factory, The Stand and Pink's.
Fans can vote on line at www.aolcityguide.com/losangeles/best through Jan 26. Last year more than 2.6 million votes were cast. The Dodgers drew more than 3.7 million fans in 2006, so the competition is very winnable.
So Dodgers fans, and anyone who has ever been to Dodgers Stadium and enjoyed a Dodger Dog, get onto the net and cast your vote......maybe the Dodgers can claim their first major championship since 1988!
