In one of the biggest moves of the season the Tigers have sent the Singing Hot Dog Man, Charlie Marcuse, packing. That’s right, the Tigers fired Charlie. Well, not technically, the food vendor Sportservice did the dirty work for Tigers so they can claim ignorance or innocence or whatever.
I’m a season ticket holder and at first I didn’t care for Charlie but as I got to know him I got to like him a lot. He is a nice, decent human being and I always waited for him to come around to buy hot dogs.
I’m not sure what issues the Tigers had with Charlie but I can’t believe getting rid of him was so important. Perhaps bullpen or catching help would have been more useful.
I’m not sayin, I’m just saying.

Good Luck Charlie!
