1 pound ground beef
8 hot dogs
8 hot dog buns
1 (15 ounce) can sloppy joe sauce
1. Crumble the ground beef into a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir until evenly browned. Drain off grease, and reduce the heat to medium. Stir in the sloppy joe sauce, and bring to a simmer. Add the hot dogs, and cook until heated through.
2. Place hot dogs into buns and cover with the sloppy joe mixture. Eat with a fork, or use just a little bit of the sauce and eat like a regular hot dog.

Now, just in time for the start of another Phillies season, the curtain goes up next week on Xfinity Live!—a 60,000-square-foot sports and entertainment center owned by Comcast-Spectacor. And it’s dropped smack dab in the middle of the sports complex.
Well, it hasn’t been the start Philadelphia Union fans were hoping for, but perhaps the one they feared from the boys in blue as the Chester-based team heads into the 2012 fray after an offseason of upheaval and uncertainty.
Combining elements of football, basketball, soccer and rugby, ultimate Frisbee originated in the late 1960s at a high school in nearby Maplewood, N.J. Though the sport has gone international with teams in every corner of the globe, the Spinners will be one of the eight teams participating in the inaugural season of the American Ultimate Disc League.
Welcome to our annual Spring Guide. This year, we've devoted our pages to all things sports. It is, after all, the season of the fan. It's playtime, folks. Game on!
