â†µWith about six minutes left to bleed off in the Jets' 38-0 blasting of the Raiders, CBS cameras caught Mark Sanchez furtive scarfing down of a hot dog while sitting on the bench. It's not quite as bad as the Nate Newton incident in which he tried to hide a Snickers bar inside his uniform, but even with a few minutes remaining and a prohibitive lead, Sanchise probably could've held out a little bit longer. â†µ
â†µHe did show sufficient contrition afterward. â†µâ†µ
â†µâ‡¥"I want to apologize for that," Sanchez said. "I wasn't feeling very good and didn't eat much before the game, so I was feeling a little queasy. Toward the end of the game, I probably should have eaten one of those bars or something, but someone offered [a hot dog], so I grabbed it and tried to be discreet about it, but obviously not discreet enough. So I shouldn't have done that, and it won't happen again." â†µ
â†µSomeone offered a hot dog on the sideline? Do the vendors happen to venture that close to field. And I thought having beer guys dip into the restrooms was bad. â†µâ†µ
