So, a little confused as to what I'm even doing here (as one often is in a dream), I suit up and run onto the practice field. Whole team is out there, running drills, loosening up, all that jazz. Coach looks me over and says, "You ever played football?"
"No," I tell him, "but I've played hot dog."
"Hot dog?! What the hell is that?"
"Well, it's almost the same as football. Same rules, same helmet and pads. But instead of a football you play with a hot dog."
