This doesn’t do much to solve the question that has plagued people for hundreds of years: is a hot dog a sandwich?
However, this particular creation is a sandwich and it is being sold at Royals spring-training games in Surprise, Ariz.
It’s name: The Triple Play Dog. It is a hot dog, wrapped with a hamburger, which is then wrapped in bacon. Seems right up Ron Swanson’s alley,* but I don’t know how many calories this thing has. Not sure I want to know, either.
*He’s the meat-loving, banana-hating character on “Parks and Recreation.”

Here is a photo of this particular food:
That photo in that tweet is from Josh Frigerio, a digital journalist for ABC 15 in Phoenix. He later tweeted that the Triple Play Dog costs just $8.75, which actually doesn’t sound like a bad deal.
Frigerio also shared a photo of some of the other choices at Surprise Stadium. There is the ever-popular Margarita, and another mash-up of food: macaroni and cheese and a bratwurst.
If you are going to see some Royals games at spring training, bring your appetite. And maybe an antacid.
