The Great Bratbino: A One-Pound Brat in Honor of the Rangers' Josh Hamilton

The Great Bratbino.
The Texas Rangers announced yesterday that soon you'll be able to upgrade that Boomstick dog to a combo meal, which includes two one-liter bottles of Coke.

And, in fairness, since Nellie got a hot dog in honor of his hot bat, Joshie gets one too: The Great Bratbino.

John Blake with the Rangers tells us that the two-foot-long, one-pound bratwurst will come standard with sauerkraut but can be topped with chili, nacho cheese, grilled onions and jalapenos (or all of those?) much the same as the Boomstick.

Scout out sections 16, 42, 326 or the Captain Morgan Club for both the Boomstick and The Great Bratbino.

The Bratbino will make it debut during the next homestand, May 25, when the boys play the Blue Jays. Wait, Toronto still has a team?

Josh Hamilton's "Great Hambino" nickname is in tribute to Babe Ruth, so isn't this bratwurst also in tribute to Babe Ruth, really?

Was out there yesterday and this made an appearance on the big vidja board, followed by a collective yawn.

Saw the value meal for sale out behind the home run porch in left field. I thought it was one, one liter bottle for an extra $11. Two bottles sounds more reasonable but still.

They've done a good job at jamming "revenue generators" into every square inch of the ball park. Money should never enter into any conversations out there.

Good lord. That bun look so dense. Probably has to be to stand up to the gigantic brat running down it's middle and loaded with all those toppings. I'm thinking the bun is the hardest part about taking this behemoth down.

Ugh. Yes, Toronto still has a team. A pretty decent one. They're a rumored suitor for Hamilton if he hits free-agency.

I'm now more convinced the Rangers think we're all a bunch of hicks. Josh should get something ham-based. But no, they just slap together another hot dog variation and call it a day.

I was thinking the same thing. Bratbino just sounds lazy. It needed to be something ham based.

I love brats, but there is no way I would attempt to eat that one at the ballpark. I'm very secure in my heterosexuality, but even if I was home I wouldnt feel right unless I ate that one with a knife and fork.

I'd go with the Bratbino before the Boomstick..me likey Brats! and Beer..and Kraut.  Nolan's arm is gonna fall of if'n he cooks up 50k of these big ol weiners.

Sorry; but until Josh signs a long term contract w/ the Rangers, I think naming a sandwich after him is too much idoltry.

Josh has already told us Rangers fans he has no long term loyalty to us.
