Bowl Game representative Laura delaMontaigne talks to the Fox 5 morning crew

Question of the day, what does wiener dog racing have to do with college football? Find out this Saturday at the 13th annual Wienerschnitzel Wiener Nationals at Qualcomm Stadium. The competition is actually a fund-raiser and awareness-building event for the Pacific Life Holiday Bowl & the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl games played in San Diego every December.

Early this morning fifteen hopeful wiener dogs and their owners held exhibition heats for the local Fox morning show. Many of the dogs looked better than they actually ran, all suited up with capes and even racing goggles.

The real action starts at 8:00am Saturday at Qualcomm Stadium. The 16 fastest dogs advance to the semi-finals which will be held during a Padres game at PETCO Park on September 1st.

About Brian

I am married with two beautiful children and loving life. I’m pretty sure my head size is literally getting larger every year I go past 30, is that normal? I love my job & hometown of SD and if you ever visit you’ll understand why my city is better than the rest.

What would you do on your ideal San Diego day?

Golf in the morning. Then head to La Jolla shores with friends. Wrap it up with dinner at a great sushi restaurant and then finish watching the Padres beat the Dodgers.

If you were invisible, where would you go?

Behind the scenes just about anywhere. I always want to know what’s making it all tick, at a theme park, a ballpark, or a concert. I love seeing what's happening behind the curtain.

What is your favorite San Diego outdoor activity?

Hanging at the beach and playing volleyball with friends. I also really love going to dog beach & now that I’m a new dad, anywhere that makes the little guy laugh.

Do you prefer burgers and beer or linguine and red wine?

Burgers and beer for sure!
