New York Jets Mark Sanchez Gives Hot Dogs To Hungry....

JOCKlife SportsContributor IOctober 28, 2009

New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has taken his love for in-game hot dogs to the next level by donating more than 1,000 hot dogs and hamburgers to the Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown, a representative of the quarterback told ESPN's Shelley Smith.

The Jets announced on Twitter that Sanchez purchased 500 hot dogs, 500 hamburgers and buns to donate to the soup kitchen.

Sanchez has been the subject of a lot of criticism following the Jets win over the Oakland Raiders last Sunday for being caught on camera eating a hot dog on the sideline during the 38-0 rout over the Raiders.

Although Sanchez tried to be discreet while eating the hot dog, cameras were still able to capture the rookie QB sneaking a few bites of his tasty treat.

Sanchez apologized after the hot dog incident and later even issued a formal apology.

"I want to apologize for that," he said. "I wasn't feeling very good and didn't eat much before the game, so I was feeling a little queasy. Toward the end of the game, I probably should have eaten one of those bars or something, but someone offered [a hot dog], so I grabbed it and tried to be discreet about it, but obviously not discreet enough. So I shouldn't have done that, and it won't happen again."

Now with his donation hopefully he can put the incident behind him and continue leading the Jets the rest of the season.
