Continuing with a sly smile, and holding up a phallic frankfurter, the ballplayer asks, "Hey, you ever try these hotdogs?" The cashier says, "Oh yeah." And with a bigger grin, the player says "Pretty good, huh?"

This exchange is interrupted by a team buddy who sticks his head into the store and shouts, "Todd, you're up!" Todd shoves the hotdog into his mouth, grabs his stuff and runs out.

Though the ball player wears a wedding ring, there is some vagueness going on in their exchange that isn't the typical macho exchange that audiences have come to expect from two guys, let alone an athlete. If it were a woman behind the counter, no one would think twice that he was trying to seduce her.

A softball player in an am/pm convenience store buys beer, chips and some ballpark franks while chatting up the guy behind the register.

"Thanks a lot," says the cashier. "Thank YOU," counters the ball player. Making idle chatter and perhaps coming on to the young man, he asks, "So... you been busy?"

Continuing with a sly smile, and holding up a phallic frankfurter, the ballplayer asks, "Hey, you ever try these hotdogs?" The cashier says, "Oh yeah." And with a bigger grin, the player says "Pretty good, huh?"

This exchange is interrupted by a team buddy who sticks his head into the store and shouts, "Todd, you're up!" Todd shoves the hotdog into his mouth, grabs his stuff and runs out.

It's one of my favorites. I don't think it's ambiguous at all. The first time I saw it I knew this guy was hitting on the clerk. Yeah AM/PM!

Todd , Mexico City, Mexico
I agree. The fact that the guy is coming out of the store looking for the guy who called him some time ago (and who has obviously gone) completes the gay affaire!
