Inspired by The Yu Dog, 25 More Dishes to Honor DFW Sports Stars

The Yu Dog at Rangers Ballpark in Arlington has created a food media circus. But he's not the only DFW sports icon worthy of his own dish at The Ballpark in Arlington, Jerryland and the AAC. Here are some others.

1. Tom Landry Enormous fedora filled with chili. Feather garnish optional.

2. Nolan Ryan Two-pound slab of organic beef, loaded into a Heater Pro pitching machine and hurled at your face at 102 mph. Catch it, and it's free.

3. Michael Irvin Fried mink.Iincludes free plastic pinky finger to dip cocaine flavored dipping sauce.

4. Troy Aikman Chicken Fried Steak. It's all-American and so is he, dammit.
