Just in time for football season, here’s the “Chessie,” which is about to join the concessions lineup at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium. Officially, it consists of an enormous “24-ounce hot soft pretzel smothered in back fin crab dip and melted cheddar cheese, then topped with a dusting of Old Bay.” Unofficially, it no doubt consists of some ancient, Tolkien-esque primordial force that can be used for good or evil. It serves four, in either case, and at $17.50 — $4.38 a person! — that’s a steal, at least for a sports venue. [Washington Post via Foodspin]
