Wings implement bacon ban vs. Pigs

All WNY News     Thursday, May 11, 2017    

STAFF REPORTS



With the Red Wings' IL North rival, the pork-loving, bacon-boasting, Lehigh Valley IronPigs coming to town May 15-18, the Wings will be implementing a bacon ban at Frontier Field for the series.
 In fact, the Wings will be pulling most of the pork from the Frontier Field concession stands while our foes from "Bacon, USA" are in town. The only exception being hot dogs because, well, what's a baseball game without hot dogs?!
For those upset they can't get themselves the MuckDog at 'Sup Dog, bacon bits on their baked potato at Red Osier or the "Pig Two Ways Mac N' Cheese" at Say Cheese, our friends at WebMD remind us that 68% of bacon's calories come from fat, almost half of which is saturated. Eating foods rich in saturated fats can raise your cholesterol levels, increasing your risk of heart disease and stroke. So even if your taste buds hate us for the week, your heart will thank us later.
Your wallets will be squealing with joy too as we'll even be trimming the fat off ticket prices for the homestand. Since there are 3.5 G of fat in one slice of bacon, all online tickets will be $3.50 OFF using promo code BANTHEBACON.
We'll be sure not to boar you while you're at the ballpark, here's a list of other homestand highlights…
