Mark Sanchez Donates Hot Dogs to Charity

After the controversy surrounding Mark Sanchez's hot dog eating Sunday, the rookie stepped up to the plate for a local charity.

Sanchez has bought 500 hot dogs and 500 hamburgers, along with buns and rolls, through A&P supermarket, and donated them to the Community Soup Kitchen of Morristown, N.J.

Sanchez was grilled Sunday after television cameras caught him trying to discreetly put mustard on a hot dog and eat it late in New York's 38-0 win at Oakland. He apologized after the game, saying he didn't feel well and needed to eat something. Sanchez added that "it won't happen again."

Nice touch and a good way to diffuse this story.
