So you want to be a lawyer, eh? Better brush up on THE LAW:
"(T)he risk of being hit in the face by a hot dog is not a well-known incidental risk of attending a baseball game," the court ruled. "Consequently, a plaintiff may not be said to have consented to, and voluntarily assumed, the risk by attending the game."
This is much ado about hot links, as a Kansas man is suing the Kansas City Royals for sausage-related injuries suffered at the hands of Sluggerrr, the Royals' mascot. And we all know what the real tragedies are:
a. The Royals have a mascot that's the product of an unholy union between a lion and a Sea Monkey
b. The Royals had to add two extra "r"s to his name for some awful reason.
Also, someone got hit in the face by a hot dog, and he's suing the Royals.
