Detroit Tigers Lose Legend in Singing Hot Dog Guy Because He Refused Ketchup
Growing up in the suburbs of Detroit, I have grown to love — and sometimes loathe — the Detroit Tigers‘ singing hot dog vendor. For the longest time I thought he was nameless because he was just known as “the singing hot dog guy”, but now I know his name is Charlie Marcuse.
Why do I know this and why do I even bring this up? Well recently, the famous singing vendor has recently been fired for his apparent complaints from customers. How could anyone send in a written complaining about a hot dog vendor? He must have done something awful or unspeakable, right? Wrong — well, sort of wrong.
According to Comerica Park management, Marcuse was accused, by a handful of customers, of refusing ketchup to innocent people who paid for the $10 dog.
Check out the singing sensation here:
Tony Paul of the Detroit News described the possible reason for the man’s firing:
There are rumblings the real reason was ketchup — or Marcuse’s disdain for it. Marcuse, at the ballpark and on Twitter, has been a strong crusader for only putting mustard on a frank. And some fans thought he got combative when they asked for ketchup. There were complaints filed.
So the man didn’t want people to use ketchup on his precious frank? I am not necessarily opposed to this because I personally think mustard on a hot dog is the best thing for the classic ballpark meal. However, management disagreed and sent the 15-year ballpark vet packing.
It will be very quiet in Comerica without this guy.
