Looks like Johnny Manziel will be the top dog -- at least at Canal Park in Akron, Ohio.
The Akron RubberDucks on Friday revealed a new addition to their popular "Extreme Foods" menu that pays homage to the Cleveland Browns quarterback.
Named after "Johnny Football", the "Johnny Footlong" is an 8-ounce Five Star hot dog topped with Texas Jack chili, shredded pepper jack cheese and Sriracha sauce.
"We're always looking to incorporate the sporting trends of northeastern Ohio into our menu," said Brian Manning, director of food and beverage, in a press release. "This is a great way to mix the excitement in the region with a fun, delicious and quality product."
The "Extreme Menu" item will sell for $8 and is available at The Dog Pound concession stand located in left field behind the new Fowl Territory seating.
"Johnny Football mania is in full swing at Canal Park, and we are excited to have a food and beverage offering dedicated to the new Browns Quarterback. It's an exciting time for the Akron and Cleveland area," said RubberDucks GM Jim Pfander in a press release.
