Mark Sanchez Criticized For Eating Weiner

Yep, you read that right. He really did it. On the sidelines of an NFL game no less.


After demolishing the Oakland Raiders this weekend, NY Jets golden child Mark Sanchez was caught on the sidelines discretely chowing down on a hot dog.

There's even video evidence of the crime in progress!

Now granted, this isn't really news worthy.  Nor should it be.  My hot dog news begins and ends with who wins Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest each year.  But what's funny about this is the fact that Sanchez actually had to address this.

AND issue an apology!

[side note] - Why is it that anything unconventional deserves an apology? Most of the time it’s not even a big deal. We all know nobody really means them. What’s the point? And why do people really need to hear them??

But anyway, via the New York Post:

"I want to apologize for that," Sanchez said. "I wasn't feeling very good and didn't eat much before the game, so I was feeling a little queasy. Toward the end of the game, I probably should have eaten one of those bars or something, but someone offered [a hot dog], so I grabbed it and tried to be discreet about it, but obviously not discreet enough. So I shouldn't have done that, and it won't happen again." [NYP]
Lame excuse Mark.  You're a high-profile, starting quarterback in the NFL.  You need to stand up for your choice of processed meats as well as where you decide to devour them.

Sorry to hear your tummy was hurtin' you though.
