Though the full-sized helmet nachos at Great American Ballpark may lack meat, they obviously represent progress toward the goal shared by most thoughtful humans of having all foods served in helmets.

It is an underreported fact that during his tenure in Queens, John Olerud regularly enjoyed postgame Minestrone in the very same helmet he wore to play first base. We’ve already got ice cream, tacos and nachos in helmets. The next logical steps seem like cereal and spaghetti.
Anyone think I can convince my wife to replace all our bowls with plastic baseball helmets? They’d match our decor.
