4 New Food Items Available During the 2014 All-Star Game

Hangover Burger 2 Double Play ALL STAR Foot Long sausage Brat-Dog Linda Bean Lobster Corn Dog

These are four of the most delicious-looking concessions available at the 2014 MLB All-Star Game at Target Field:

1. The Hangover Burger: The hangover burger uses a mix of ground beef and ground bacon for two quarter-pound patties. They’re topped with american cheese, lettuce, onions, a fried egg, and a sauce made from sriracha, ketchup, mayo and cornichons.

2. The Brat Dog: A footlong hot dog wrapped in bratwurst, then wrapped in bacon, served on a pretzel roll. There are peppers, too, so you get your veggies. It’s healthy, right?

3. The Double Play: A polish sausage and a bratwurst stuffed onto the same bun, side by side.

4. Lobster Corn Dog: Fried lobster on a stick. Let’s do this.

Here are the scenarios:

If the U.S. wins: The Americans are through to the next round as the winners of Group G and will play the second place team from Group H. (Belgium currently leads Group H, followed by Algeria, Russia and South Korea)

Germany would finish second unless Ghana or Portugal won and passed Germany on goal differential. Germany currently is plus 4, Ghana is minus 1 and Portugal is minus 4. The second place finisher plays the winner of Group H.

If Germany wins: Germany wins the group.

The U.S. would finish second unless Ghana or Portugal won and passed the U.S. on goal differential. The U.S. is plus 1, Ghana is minus 1 and Portugal is minus 4. So, if the U.S. loses to Germany, it will be rooting for Portugal, because it’s less likely that Portugal could pass the U.S. on goal differential.

If Germany and the U.S. draw: Germany wins the group and the U.S. finishes second. The result of the other game is meaningless.

If Ghana and Portugal draw: The U.S. and Germany advance. Germany wins the group unless the U.S. defeats them.

Other tiebreakers: In any of these scenarios involving goal differential, if two teams are tied on points and goal differential, the next tiebreaker is total goals scored. Germany has six goals, the U.S. has four, Ghana has three and Portugal has two.

50 Cent’s awkward first pitch

50 cent

Congratulations to Carly Rae Jepsen, the Cincinnati mayor and countless others, as there might just be a new contender for the worst opening pitch.

Rapper 50 Cent threw out the first pitch on Tuesday before the New York Mets took on the Pittsburgh Pirates at Citi Field, but it wasn’t pretty.

A Snowball’s Chance in Brazil

soccer-self-wedgie-wtf

The World Cup kicks off in less than three weeks and Team USA has a 259-to-1 chance of winning the whole thing. (Quick, cue the video)

In other words, your money is probably safer elsewhere. As seen on sports betting/news hub Betfair, you can apparently wager on just about anything, from obscure sports such as darts and snooker to international political races to crap reality television like “Big Brother” or even the weather. Yes, the weather. Seriously, you can bet on almost anything.

And at 259-to-1, anything is a better bet than the boys in red, white and blue bringing home the trophy. Let’s take a look at some far-fetched things that actually have a better chance of happening than Team USA winning it all:

The Minnesota Twins winning the American League pennant: 84-to-1

Minnesota Vikings winning the Super Bowl: 99-to-1

Vikings winning the NFC Championship: 29-to-1

California Chrome winning the Triple Crown: 5-to-4

Andrew Talansky (the most favored American) winning the Tour de France: 249-to-1

Hillary Clinton winning the 2016 presidential election: 5-to-4

Sarah Palin winning the 2016 presidential election: 79-to-1

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobucher winning the Democratic nomination for the 2016 Presidential election: 64-to-1

Ricky Martin being the winning judge on The Voice: 7-to-5
