17 hidden images in sports logos you won’t be able to unsee

The Tostitos Fiesta Bowl is no longer with us. But during the game’s long history or during any tortilla-based snacking you’ve ever had, have you noticed that the two T’s in “Tostitos” are sharing a bowl of salsa made by the dot on the I?

See the others!

My fingers are a little wet from drooling while posting this!

These are four of the most delicious-looking concessions available at the 2014 MLB All-Star Game at Target Field:

1. The Hangover Burger: The hangover burger uses a mix of ground beef and ground bacon for two quarter-pound patties. They’re topped with american cheese, lettuce, onions, a fried egg, and a sauce made from sriracha, ketchup, mayo and cornichons.

2. The Double Play: A polish sausage and a bratwurst stuffed onto the same bun, side by side.

3. The Brat Dog: A footlong hot dog wrapped in bratwurst, then wrapped in bacon, served on a pretzel roll. There are peppers, too, so you get your veggies. It’s healthy, right?

4. Lobster Corn Dog: Fried lobster on a stick. There are no bad parts about that.

Seattle Mariners third baseman Kyle Seager lost control of his bat and it flew into the stands, landing on a young Astros fan named Lyle. Lyle wrote Seager a letter.

Dear Mr. Seager,
My name is Lyle Raymond. Your bat landed on me. I am OK. Thanks for giving me the thumbs up when you were on first base. I like the Astros but will cheer you on too. I gave back your bat because you had a big hitting streak with that bat. I hope you have more hits with that bat.
Your fan, Lyle

Too bad integration didn’t come sooner because there were so many ballplayers that could have made the major leagues. That’s why you look back, and not to take away anything from Babe Ruth or some of those other guys, they didn’t play against the greatest ballplayers in the world.
