Stadium Food Fails in Florida

Yikes. An ESPN report on stadium and arena vendors indicates Florida is home to seven of the country's eight worst venues when it comes to health violations.

The Rays may be No. 2 in the baseball standings right now, but they're tied for No. 1 on this not-so-dubious list. According to ESPN, Tropicana Field and the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. are the only two venues in the country where 100 percent of vendors were in violation of health codes. At The Trop, offenses include dirty countertops, utensils, and equipment.

Now, in fairness, it appears ESPN may have data that is up to a year old. Presumably, most teams would have cracked down on vendors once violations were reported. And, at The Trop, while every vendor was cited, they also all met the basic inspection standards to keep operating.
