Mark Sanchez's Hot Dog Donations: Jets QB Gives Back After Sideline Snack

Mark Sanchez, quarterback of the New York Jets, is making amends for what some dubbed "Hot Dog-Gate." He was caught on camera stealthily eating a hotdog on the sideline during last Sunday's game against the Raiders.

So what's a hot dog lover got to do to set things right? Help the less fortunate and hot dogless, of course. Sanchez donated more than 1,000 hot dogs and hamburgers to the Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown, New Jersey, as penance for his sideline snack. The Jets then announced on Twitter that Sanchez has purchased 500 hot dogs and 500 hamburgers for the soup kitchen.
