The becomming of the franks...

The idea started at a recent Braves - Giants game. We had all seen the Brew Crew and Sheff's Chefs, so we decided Jeff needed his own fan club. We were sitting behind Jeff in right field, when Brett leaned over and said that his dad had 4 hot dog suits that he used for hazing the new employees at his company. Ideas started to flow, and it eventually evolved into Francoeur's Franks.

Our coming out party came on Friday, September 2nd against the Cincinatti Reds. Being broke college students, we could only afford the $5 skyline tickets in section 435. We thought it would be a good joke and maybe get on TV a couple times, little did we know 5 wieners could become so big, so fast.

After starting out with a perfect 4 - 0 record at home, we decided to take our hot dog act on the road to Washington for the Sept. 10th game. To no one's surprise, our perfect record remained, and we look forward to suiting up and cheering on Jeff and the Braves to victory down the stretch! We've gotten a lot of publicity lately, and thats cool, but we want everyone to know that we are in it to root the Braves on to a Championship!
