New Stud in Town

SAWWWWSAGEThis post is more for you out-of-staters, so that you may be kept current on important local happenings.

The Milwaukee Brewers have a new hot stud in town. He's pretty beefy (porky?), but he's not Carlos Lee. He's the new Klement's Racing Sausage - Chorizo.

Brewers add new sausage to race - Chorizo represents growing Latino population in Wisconsin:

Chorizo will join the Bratwurst, Polish Sausage, Italian Sausage and Hot Dog for a race on "Cerveceros Day" -- that's "Brewers" in Spanish for you gringos -- following the sixth inning of Saturday's Brewers-Reds game at Miller Park. Chorizo will then be "optioned out to the Minor Leagues for more seasoning," according to Melvin, though there is also the issue of Major League Baseball's approval process for new mascots. The Sausage Race will officially become a five-weenie affair beginning on Opening Day of 2007.

Chorizo, a spicy pork sausage, signed a contract and was presented with a jersey reading "Cerveceros" across the front during Thursday's mock press conference, an affair stuffed with so many food references it left you with a stomach ache. But this was also serious business.

Naturally I'm wondering when will there be a Japanese inspired sausage in honor of Tomo Ohka?

For those trivia buffs out there, were you aware that the sausages had names?

#1, Brett Wurst is a bratwurst and wears green Austro-Bavarian lederhosen.
#2, Stosh Jonjak is a Polish sausage and wears dark sunglasses and a blue and red rugby shirt.
#3, Guido is an Italian sausage and wears a chef's outfit.
#4, Frankie Furter is a hot dog and wears a baseball uniform.
#5, El Picante is a chorizo and wears a sombrero.
