The NFL Experience, the interactive football theme park that comes to the Dallas Convention Center tomorrow, has a hot dog of its own -- and it's unclear whether any other venue would want it.

Centerplate chefs have been too slammed to arrange a photo session, but spokesperson Ashley Luneburg called me back for a quick Superdog chat.
