Pitchin’ Porkroll

Had a great time last night at the Trenton Thunder ball park throwing out the first pitch and enjoying the “Ballpark Jersey Fusion” cuisine, which I just made up, but think it might stick as a hashtag, #BallparkJerseyFusion.  Ok, hot dogs and pork roll.  Really though, first class stadium food.

And for some of the items, bacon is added making everything better.  The best thing on the menu and quite possibly the best thing I’ve eaten all week was the “Pig Pen” which is a combo of mashed potatoes, pork roll, bacon AND pulled pork.  I think that Jessica Nutt  from Chasing News would agree, although both of us loved the pork roll version of the Philly Cheesesteak…because, well, cheese whiz…some of which did end up on the floor…sorry guys.  Yes, the feast took place in the broadcast booth which I think we completely disrupted.  Although both broadcasters, Adam and Jon were good sports and let the GM Jeff  know that we should be invited back, apparently this was the only time they were allowed to eat in the booth.  Anyway, it was a great time and compared to the time and money families spend on major league games, the best bang for your sports entertainment buck.

Although my first pitch was not exactly major league quality.  

Congrats to the little kid who threw after me, a perfect fastball, and a strike.  As Jessica put it…he “smoked” me.

I’ll be back out on the field Thursday night with the Lakewood Blue Claws, in search of more #BallparkJerseyFusion food…and hopefully a better pitch.  Word on the street is that they have a pork roll and funnel cake creation…stay tuned.
