In 2014, the National Hot Dog and Sausage Council officially came out in disapproval of adults using ketchup on hot dogs. In a guide to hot dog etiquette, the organization decreed that “for those 18 years of age and older, acceptable wiener toppings include mustard, relish, onions, cheese and chili.”
People are pretty frank about the horror that this pairing creates. “Ketchup on your hot dog is the end of the world,” said Bill Savage in the Chicago Tribune. Savage says you’re not a real Chicagoan if you put the tomato-based condiment on your dog.
That’s why I was floored this morning when I saw WBBM Newsradio 780 AM and 105.9 FM reporting that Chicago Bears Quarterback Mitch Trubisky had topped his hot dogs with ketchup. I may be a Michigander, but I am an American. And I know traitor when I see it.
Chicago Bears quarterback Mitch Trubisky agrees he may have committed an infraction three or four years ago, which was the last time he had a hot dog. His choice of topping then: ketchup – WBBM Newsradio
WBBM’s Kevin Jackman cornered him during a recent interview. “Now that I’m in Chicago, I’ve got to get out and put more toppings on my hot dog,” he said to the reporter. That’s right Mitchell. You had better learn to top your dog like a red-blooded American.
