TCTOD: A ballpark that sells a one-pound, 16-inch hot dog with 40 available toppings

Via Fasolamatt, who found this item on Darren Rovell's Sports Biz site:

 

Jason Kerton has made a living disrupting "normal" at the ballpark.

In Charleston, he devised the “Homewrecker,” a half-pound, foot-long hot dog with 22 optional toppings. Now the food and beverage director of the Akron Aeros, the Double-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, he’s upping the ante.

“I’m in Akron, so I’m just kind of bored,” admitted Kerton. “When I arrived here, I was bumming around my apartment and the weather wasn’t good so I thought, what else could I do to make it fun?”

The result?

Fans will have the option of buying up to a pound of hot dog ($8), a 16-inch colossus known as the “Eighth Wonder of the World” at games and there will be 40 toppings to choose from ranging from wasabi to marinara to mac and cheese to even sprinkles.

Do you really want to know what the toppings are? Of course you do. We are listing them below. Your job, in the comments, is to construct the best dog possible using at least five toppings. Our dog has bacon, jalapeno bacon, chili, ham and pepperoni. We call it "The Meat Cycle Dog." Let it be known that we have been to an Akron Aeros game in Akron. The year was 2003. The night was perfect. The heckling was pure. If we would have had the option of buying that hot dog, we have to think we would have done it.
