New Addition To Wrigley Field Menu: ‘Try Not To Suck’ Bratwursts

(CBS) A hallmark phrase of Cubs manager Joe Maddon is making its way into the culinary realm.

During the team’s final homestand of the regular season, Hot Doug’s is offering up a “Try Not To Suck” bratwurst at Wrigley Field. The brat is of the cheddar-stuffed variety and topped with Goose Island beer mustard, crispy fried onions and smoked gouda cheese. It was named by an auction winner at the Cubs Charities & Bricks Ivy Ball.

To date, no photos have surfaced of the “Try Not To Suck” brat, but it will be available when the Cubs host the Brewers on Thursday night with a chance to clinch the NL Central.

“Try not to suck” is one of Maddon’s signature phrases, with the team sporting T-shirts with the slogan most notably in spring training and still referencing it here and there.
