Earlier this season, we lost the "Eat 'Em Up, Tigers" man and his friend.
Now, Tigers fans will no longer hear the voice of Charley Marcuse.
You could often hear him during FSD's broadcasts of Tigers games -- that operatic voice heard chanting, "Hot dooooogs" ... and occasionally accompanied by a note or two.
Sometimes listeners would belt back ...
He even flirted with FSD's Shannon Hogan on TV earlier this season.
And now, Charley is no longer there.
Sportsservice, the vending company contracted by the Tigers, released the singing hot dog slinger last week.
Actually, it's Charley's strong dislike of ketchup that may have led him into trouble.
You see, Charley believes that mustard should be the only thing that one should eat on a hot dog. Just mustard. Nothing else.
He's been quite vocal about it for years. Even tweeted about it.
Tony Paul from The Detroit News reports that some fans thought Charley got combative when they asked for ketchup ... and complaints were filed.
Charley says he carried ketchup with him, and would give it out when people asked for it.
And it's not the first time Charley ran into conflict with management.
Apparently, his singing was a problem. There were restrictions placed on Charley's singing. Management laid out just exactly how many times he could sing and when he could sing while hawking hot dogs.
So now what?
Since hot dog vendors aren unionized, Charley has filed a grievance.
In the meantime, maybe he can make some money selling his mustard. His own brand of mustard. Charley's Ballpark Mustard.
