I know you guys are gonna laugh at this

Discussion in 'Columbus Crew SC' started by falcon6, Aug 13, 2002.

  1. I know you guys are gonna laugh at this but when I first heard the term "buck a brat" I thought it meant it was a dollar admission for kids under 12 to get in to the match. Then I found out it was food. Go ahead and laugh.

    Actually no...I'm even a Crew fan yet I thought this for probably 6 months. Then when people starting talking about eating brats it still took another week to realize there was no canibalism involved.

    If I'm going to laugh at you it's cause you support the MetroStars and probably don't dress as good as I do. But that brat thing is understandable.

    I think it has to do with the high concentration of German and Polish cultural influences in central -> north Ohio. I knew what they meant immediately - in fact, in college, I had beer and bratwurst for breakfast before each Ohio State gridiron home game. Mmmm-Mmmm-Mmmm! (Of course, those brats were fully cooked...)

    Anyway, if you aren't from a brat-eating (er, inhaling) culture, I can see why you'd be totally confused.

    EGGY thought the same thing. Kid for a Quid was a Wolves promo.

    These brats have no taste to them, I wonder if they are made of Soy?

    They're probably not boiled in beer...the only proper way to cook a bratwurst.

    Kraut is extra... a quarter or fifty cents, I forget which... and no they aren't boiled in beer which is why they are awful. At least the Johnsonville tractor trailer grill will be there, so nobody will have to eat those steamed into submission brats from the concession stands.

    Sir, you are mistaken. I am not THAT cheap of a treat, especially not for Eggy.

    As a full-blooded brat-eating society crazed young man, the idea of $1 brats is always very enticing. I'm sure I'll eat a few to honor my ancestors. As for them not being cooked in beer, I think they should also be cooked with onions (and beer). That is one of the best ways to have brats.

    I never ate a Brat until I was like 20. I love hamburgers.

    In upstate New York (Rochester/Buffalo) they serve Bockwurst, only they call them "White Hots". A regular hot dgog is a "Red hot".

    I've never found another place on earth this is done quite like this.

    I always found that pretty interesting. My pops would slide right back into "hometown" mode, and I'd be all like "what the hell is a 'white hot'?"

    Quite a weird part of the country. Very quirky up there. Must be all the snow.
