Pawtucket Red Sox Offer Weird "Name Change" Ploy At August 16th Game

We always suspected Rhode Island was a weird place. Yeah, they're technically part of New England, but they are fringy members of the region at best. They talk differently, eat differently, and they're ridiculously small for a state. Oh, and their official name is: "State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations." Weird, right? Now, a Pawtucket Red Sox promotion this August 16th just cements our view of "Little Rhody". On that date, the PawSox will take the McCoy Stadium field as The Pawtucket Hot Weiners. No, it has nothing to do with Huma Abedin's ex-husband—although that would be a rational guess. Apparently, "hot weiners" are a Rhode Island food delicacy. Honestly, we never heard of them. According to those in the know, "hot weiners" are: "a small, thin hot dog consisting of veal and pork, giving it a different taste than a traditional beef hot dog. It is served in a steamed bun and topped with yellow mustard, celery salt, chopped onions, and a seasoned meat sauce." Small makes sense. So does weird.
