Nathan's Hot Dogs...Sanchez Approved!

The CEO of the Nathan's Hot Dog company is set to introduce Sanchez Tuesday morning as there spokesperson for the 2010 year. "We saw an opportunity here with a young quarterback who is having a very successful year. It will put our product out there in a way it has not been yet," the CEO said.

Put it out there it sure will. Not only do they plan on producing three commercials, any game where Sanchez is replaced by a back up due to a Jets fourth quarter league, he will sport a Nathans hot dog in his hand.

"I have done it for years; it will not be any different.  I just got "caught" last game against the Raiders because me eating a hotdog was more interesting than the game," said Sanchez.

When asked about his apology he continued, “Obviously you got me wrong.  Coach made it clear he was not happy with not getting one. I said that will never happen again.”

The NFL has yet to release a statement about this, however Nathans is prepared to pay any fines handed down.
