This should serve as a good lesson, and that’s to always treat your hot dog vendor well. Although, you’d have to be a real jerk to treat any hot dog vendor poorly in the first place.
Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon was getting a hot dog from a vendor before their game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Saturday at Wrigley Field. But this wasn’t an ordinary vendor, it was CBS Late Show host Stephen Colbert.
Colbert talked with fans around the ballpark in his disguise, and he even threw out the first pitch for the game.
According to the Chicago Tribune, he interviewed an actual vendor:
Colbert, in disguise with long hair and a goatee, walked around Wrigley Field masquerading as a hot dog vendor and engaging with fans. He also interviewed real Wrigley hot dog vendor Rocco Caputo, a 33-year veteran who told Colbert he was one of four “Roccos” working as vendors at the Friendly Confines.
We wouldn’t expect anything less from Colbert.
