Hats off to my football game attending readers, it was another stuffed stadium Friday night when the Storm of Hopkins Central blew onto Perdue Field. It was a night of revelation for yours truly in more ways than one.

As most of you know, I think high school football is more of an event than a game. I, being in the news business, arrived early Friday evening to do what I like to call “event food analysis” so my readers will know what to expect the next time they visit that particular venue.

On Friday, after years of diligent study and testing, I have concluded that the Trigg County Band Boosters put out the finest hotdog that can be found anywhere, anytime. They are using the world famous “Nathans” brand, as in Nathans of Coney Island fame. I provide this bit of investigative journalism at no charge to my fellow concession stand devotees, no thanks required.

“Why are you so enthusiastic about this, Nikon man?” Good question, I think it’s because I had many wonderful game food experiences early in life, along with a few so-so ones. I want to share what I’ve learned so you can enjoy the great “stands” and avoid the pitfalls of hastily prepared field side fare.

What about that game Friday night?

With several dogs and some perfectly seasoned popcorn under my belt I saw an enthusiastic newly energized team make a few fundamental mistakes that were capitalized on by a more seasoned, senior laden team blessed with freakish speed. Trigg lost 25-0.
